I have been trying to figure out how I've been feeling lately about so many different things. I am trying to deal with continuing to live in Egypt - if I go back to the US how will I fit in, how will Mira fit in? I think Hassan would fit in better than any of us. This morning on Facebook I found a terrific article posted by a group I belong to named "Cross Cultural Kids Everywhere." They posted an article by The Economist where they talk about trying to fit in - and how being away from one's home country makes them feel more like an exile rather than a foreigner in another country.
Anyone who has ever lived in another country can identify with this article. It really makes me cry.
Please read the article and maybe you will understand what I am going through.
