My family and I spent a lovely week in Beirut and the Lebanese mountains for my sister Yasmine’s wedding. I’ll share some moments here.
three days in nayland } cobblers cottage

This is my fourth visit to one of my beloved Grove Cottages. This time: Cobblers Cottage. My companions are my sister-in-law Jana, her baby bump (my nephew) and, of course, Eve. The cottage is breath-taking and as always exceeds my expectations. I still can’t believe how generous people are with sharing these lovely ‘homes’.

I’m posting the rest of my September/October ‘UK days’ retrospectively, as my laptop went wonky after only a week in London. I’m back in Kuwait now, recovering from my very long trip, getting back into the hang of things.
UK days } part II

It’s been a busy few days since my sister and I arrived in London on September 10. You may notice that there isn’t a Part I to this, and that’s because I started this trip’s log with an Airplane Timelines post. I have very confused organizational methods.

Last Sunday I decided that I wanted to create a sixth Traveling Tap for my upcoming Nuqat Conference talk in November. I made this decision at the eleventh hour since I’m traveling tomorrow to the UK for a month, and wanted to take it with me. I haven’t packed, am completely exhausted, and have so much housework left […]

Last weekend my sister and I were invited to a ‘Kuwaiti’ party at our friend H’s beach house by the Saudi border. It was the equivalent of a toga party, but instead of Roman garb, the dress code was dishdashas for the men and dara’at (women’s robes) for the ladies. Folkloric singer Ismail Karam and his troop provided the […]

On a freezing morning in January, Roxie and I took my fourth Traveling Tap out for a walk around my brother’s new home in Leatherhead, Surrey. As always, I put her through the wringer. And as always, she obliged. Click here for more of her adventures.

So this is what happens when there are multiple custodians of the tapestry. I get a deluge of very similar posts. However. Each and every one is special because I know how much work goes into taking one of these shots. So I’d like to thank one mother, two aunties, and two cousins for taking […]

Ayesha’s comment on her Christ Church photo: ‘Hanging about right outside Harry Potter’s dining hall! (Had to quickly run away as the security guards were coming!!).’ She then added, ‘Wish I had a pic of what followed-me totally entangled in the tapestry in a rush to hide from the guard!’

AJ, AJ, AJ. He just took the tap experience up a few notches. He and his partner in crime Carles (one shoots, the other hones) keep outdoing themselves with every photo. Funny thing is, I was in public every time I saw one of their posts. The first two times my jaw dropped (not literally […]
