Growing roots

I have been in Saudi Arabia for almost 3 years now. It’s been so long that I feel like little by little I grew roots. Those thin like hair ones that you may be able to tear out and plant somewhere else, but you still worry – will they recover? I can’t really be sure, I don’t have a green thumb…

I’ve been here too long not to be shaken up a tiny bit by moving from Jeddah one day. Be it to Ljubljana, London or even Khartoum. You never know. Living abroad can transform you to such an extent that your soul remains a vagabond forever.

This photo was taken exactly 2 years ago. When the world was overwhelmed by the pandemic, when we had to wear masks in Saudi Arabia without a peep even outside. This day seems so long ago and at the same time just like yesterday.
