come with me

I’m not Egyptian. I know that. But I lived there for seven of-I can safely say at 41 years of age-the best years of my life. My closest friends, the people, the buildings, the air. I thought it was only way back then that I was in love with my Cairo. But it’s clear to me now that I still am. And my heart is breaking for it.
