Where Is Kat?

I received a message from Robbie Bell stating , “You’ve gone dark, where are you?, we want to know what’s going on”.  Well, we are officially a couple and the religious ceremony will be in a village 3+ hours away from Cairo.  I’ve been working,  as I do have the Negril group 6/20 celebrating my early birthday at the Tree House Resort – Yacht,  Catamaran, Gospel Brunch, dinner party, water falls, cooking School  in the mountains, straight relaxing and loving on my family that I am missing like crazy right now.  Transportation has to be set up and menus confirmed.  Yep, that’s what Kat does. And just in case you didn’t know; Italy is July 7-17, back to Egypt July 18-28, Fiji Aug 1-11 then finally a break before Tanzania Sept 12-23.

In the midst of all this I’ve been seriously focusing on my Arabic and Hamada on his English.  Today we got fresh new edition small bills to distribute to the poor and needy throughout the village on the day after the wedding which will be the EID FEAST. They say everyone loves to receive the new bills.  Charity (Zakat) is one of the 5 pillars of Islam. We all should practice more of this.

Right now in Cairo it’s 96 degrees but the cool breeze on my balcony makes it nice. Now,  I have got to mentally prepare myself for the 107 degrees in the  village with wedding attire and hijabbed down for every occasion.  I must say, me and DeeDee will dazzle the village people with our custom made embellished hijabs. We’ll show them some black girl magic in the village.   Hopefully they have held their shape in packing, shipping from Egypt to California and then traveling back to Egypt.  The term “Ramadan” comes from the Arabic word ramida or ar-ramad which means scorching heat or dryness, as it normally falls in a hot time of year.  And I’m here to tell you like Run DMC  “It’s like that and that’s the way it is”.

DeeDee arrives 6/1.  The 3 of us travel by train to the village 6/2, that night is the Henna Party, 6/3 the day fellowships with family and friends  and then the night religious wedding  ceremony, then 6/4 the EID  AL FITR. No fasting allowed on this day, the end of Ramadan.

So that’s the latest for now. More to come once we arrive in the Village…
