New Place

by - October 01, 2011

This was my first time celebrating Eid abroad (Madinah/ Saudi Arabia), and it was strange...really great to see the entire city celebrate, have fun, families going out until early in the morning (until 3am) and so much love in the air. Yet it felt a little bit lonely, since it was all new and we barely knew anyone there.

Normally we spent the 1st day of Eid having a huge lunch with the entire family and relatives. All coming over to our place. This time, it was just my parents, sister, brother and I, in a new place, knowing no one.
We still managed to have fun at the end by going out and seeing wonderful places and having a lovely dinner and delicious ice cream (Mövenpick Swiss Premium! Yuuuuummmm!)
