So proud of my foreign exchange son. Today he spoke in front of the local Rotary Club about his home country, Egypt. He lives in Cairo and is here through the organization, Worldlink. He would like to get rid of the misconceptions that students here have of how he lives. He jokingly shared that he does not ride a camel to and from school nor does he live in the desert. He prepared a wonderful presentation by showing beautiful pictures, communicated about customs, holidays they celebrate and food they typically eat.
Maybe it’s the New Yorker in me, but its never the easy cities that I fall in love with.
It’s the dirty ones, the crowded ones, the ones that don’t play by your rules, the ones that have their own rhythms and languages and noises that seem like gibberish until you give in to their chaos. And then, it becomes clear, it’s not chaos at all, but some melody your ear wasn’t accustomed to hearing.
I asked one of my interview subjects, a lifelong Cairene, if Cairo has changed much. I was thinking of the revolution in 2011 and the hectic years afterwards. He laughed. “Cairo is always the same. The same as it’s ever been, the same as it will always be. It doesn’t change. It is.”
You can hear the city’s thousands-year-old melody if you try.
And I still get goosebumps. I remember looking at the history books as a child and I never fathomed having the opportunity to see such breathtaking monuments. Truly grateful for all the sights I couldn't even imagined seeing in person💛🌍
(Little extra information: The Great Pyramid has been noted to be an eight-sided pyramid rather than four-sided --making it even rarer than the rest of pyramids. Can you see it, it's really faint.)
