was to many people that she could not list down. she wanted to also dedicate this book to her mother and also to thank the people from the Awlad Ali region and the Bedouin community, Haj, his wife and children which let her stay with them throughout this project.
First words
One takes the road that leads west, leaving behind the stately buildings and palm-lined boulevards of Alexandria, passing rows of identical sand-colored buildings with balconies crowded with children, men in undershirts, women shouting across to neighbors, and clotheslines covered with multi-colored garments that dry instantly in the bright Eqyptian sun.
