My Sanctuary

I love going to the shalaih with Mrm, her sisters and the rest of the group.  Its my sanctuary from all the craziness, annoyances, drama and losers in the City.  When I’m there I feel like i’m secluded, its as if I have left the country. 

People always wonder why I am so in love with the shalaih, I was never like that as a kid, the shalaih wasn’t my life.  I think its the group that always goes, love you girls!!! Drama free zone.  From the minute I walk in all I do is laugh (thats what I always do, bas its x10 there).  Seriously when I used to go to the shalaih with my family, I used to get so bored I would rather peel grapes and count grains of sand.  But when I go to shalaih banat S, its so different, everyone is in their own little world, bas madry its just so amazing. 

Our routine is eat, sleep, sing karoake, play wii, if the weather is nice ba7ar, if we feel like it Kout or Manshar for dinner.  Oh yeah there is a ping pong table there, but i dont like ping pong much.  Mrm is the ping pong champion.  Sometimes boocmarc/emaciaty/hair brings her dog.  I tell him to get the hell away from me all the time.  But for some reason he thinks I like him, and tends to sleep next to me, and I wake up freaking out. 

Early in the morning …


 My favorite place .. the pool … music on, laying on a floateee for hours .. then chilling by the pool talking for hours .. allaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah


Drove my american friend to see the sign 😛


When my american friend Lil D came to visit in May, we took her to the shalaih for the weekend, and part of the experience was crab catching “tigimber” at night, I lasted about 6 minutes before I started to freak out.  Lil D, Nunu and Duu3 stayed a long time, and they caught a couple of small crabs.  They cooked them, and ate them.  Now don’t ask me how they tasted I was sleeping when they did that.  I don’t know what the hell the tea bag is doing there.

    These sanctuaries are simply it a chalet, a farm, a villa in a european countryside or even a tent in the desert..when you’re with the right people it can be the best thing in the world!
