hi, my name is simon. I live in egypt. it so hot in there that youcan almost  tast the air.  In the blinding light of the Augus afternoon the river is like a semi-molten mirror. I can feel it coolness even before I flick it with my hand, sending droplets scattering over the surface like rain. Its depth is deceptive,mostly because it is as clear as a mountain spring. it rains alot. The sky is a sombre grey save for the band of salmon pink that hovers over the mountains. The dusky grey peaks give the bottom a jagged edge, whereas the clouds above soothe it with charcoal swirls.

When I woke up that morning my room smelled like pancakes mixed with some rotten egg. My sister Haya told me that it's for me to wake up. I did'nt want to leave my warm, cozy bed. it's was a challenge for me to wake up a leave my bed every morning. 

when I finally decided to wake up and get ready, I realized that malak and I had a club before the school starts. I was running out of time. I had a t-shirt and jeans on. "bye mom." I said before going to school.
