Sun, sun, sun .. like a sunflower!


Sunflowers in arabic are called 'Abad el shams" which translates into (adorer of the sun).. In these terms please consider me a sunflower! I like the sun so much, don't you think she's a God given gift to mankind??

Angels coming from above..


Streams of light shining down on the mini lagoon, the cidadel showing in the background, looks like angels will be coming down to move the surface of the waters, allowing all sorts of miracles to happen everyday.

When beauty finally replaces chaos..

El Azhar Park in Cairo


Located on Salah salem's road, between Mashyakhet El Azhar and Salah El Din's Citadel, it replaced a mass of sand and garbage to give birth to one of the most beautiful parks in Cairo.

From behind my door


This is what's hanging on my bedroom's door, it's my favorite verse from a poem by Elia Abu Madi.It says (roughly translated):
"Every day I have a different state, every while I have a different feeling
Am I today myself as I have been in days and months
Or am I at the sunset different than at dawn
Every time I ask myself it answers me??
I don't know!!"
