Sara, a new friend from class, and I went to lunch yesterday. Sara's Palestinian and Egyptian, but she grew up in the UK a couple hours north of London. She recently married an Egyptian and moved to Cairo with him.
We talked about Islam, the situation in Gaza, married life, Egyptian men and cultural norms for women in the Middle East. You know, all the things girls talk about.
Oh yeah. And she introduced me to sheesha.
We had pineapple flavor.
