Shrimping in Bubba Gump .. San Francisco

Bubba: Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey’s uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that’s about it.

A gem in Bubba Gump .. San Francisco

I got a nice surprise waiting for me in Fisherman”s Wharf of San Francisco .. A Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. restaurant ..  I never knew that such a restaurant existed .. and “Forest Gump” is my all time favorite movie and character…. The food was excellent .. shrimps as would you expect..everywhere .. in every hand and mouth … but that was not all…. there was a little gem … a young waitress flowing between the tables with unrelenting energy ,a smile and few hair strands dancing on her face … when she passed by me I noticed that she had an amputated hand .. a brave stump on her left forearm .. very proud and sure … definitely working as hard as my hand … I instantly remembered “Warda” a 9 years old little girl whom I had to surgically amputate her hand after a gangrene 21 years ago when I was junior Orthopedic resident … she may be the same age.. but 18000 miles away…Warda left a scar in my memory and this Waitress left a smile in my heart …

This restaurant surely lived to the legacy of Forest Gump when he said : Stupid is as stupid does

بالورقة والقلم – كورال العيلة 3

Amazing improvisation of choreography of this brilliant song … the girls were just flying somewhere not bothered with the circus like atmosphere around them …..

Moroccan Interiors

The Moroccan flag  is red with a green star. That’s admirably  representative of the nature of Moroccan nature . Both colours are so dominant everywhere that you wonder why the sky is blue. The tones are earthy pastels and just say ‘I am made of this land’…

Nubian Motifs

I wish I could have done some justice to the beauty of Nubia. Despite of my absorption with it, I have not in reality seen it…or at least the true one…what I visited last year was just a Nubian village in Aswan..you can call it Nubian Tourist settlement… meant for people like me with white shirts and shorts to see ,take pictures and buy cheap Galabiah (which I did..as I was supposed to do)… I have managed to feel through the fake…I didn`t miss the true Nubian soul, the architecture and the interiors… I am now fantasizing about the real thing ..the true Nubia…further past the catracts in Northen Sudan…who will take me inside a house of a Nubian who have never seen a toursit in his life…what would that feel like… I am dreaming of walls built by hand, mixing golden soil with sweat…then someone grabs a brush and paints his ancestors souls right there…. Pride and history on walls for us to see…. I now understand how the displaced Nubians feel… How can we repay them … if ever possible….

My last Pictures of Nubian Motifs concludes my journey through the Beautiful Nubia….
