Benghazi girl in Tripoli !!!
Last week, I went with my mom and dad to Tripoli,
we went by car, and my dad drove all the way long …
In the winter it is not too hard to travel by car for a long distance,
like Benghazi to Tripoli.

But the hard thing for Dad was to drive at night

when there was absolutely no light !
Here in the picture u can see how

my father drove 100 Km\hr for at least 5 hours!!!

It took about 10 hours from us to arrive to Tripoli …

There were many camels which cross the road. and they looked so cute !

and here is Shabat ,my good friend in this long trip lol

The Day Begins

(Redwave, Knight)

Cold hearted orb that rules the night
Removes the colours from our sight
Red is gray and yellow, white
But we decide which is right
And which is an illusion
Pinprick holes in a colourless sky
Let insipid figures of light pass by
The mighty light of ten thousand suns
Challenges infinity and is soon gone
Night time, to some a brief interlude
To others the fear of solitude
Brave Helios, wake up your steeds
Bring the warmth the countryside needs
From Days of Future Passed Album by
The Moody Blues

Every time I pass by the cement factory of Benghazi, I remember my good doctor that taught me in the last semesters of college .He was an old doctor taught me a course

of animal behavior , and I remember him saying that when we will graduate , every thing we learned in our years of study will not be useful for us as the animal behavior course , he said “you will go out and go and work some day and have to deal with the real life , and nothing will be helpful to you as the knowing of the animal behavior ,you will meet the lion , the snake , the fox and the spider (he meant people of course) , and if you know how they will behave , you will know how to behave back to them !!

Any way, that’ not my story!!!

Every Windy morning, my doctor came to us with red eyes and hard sneezing and coughing, he had a dust allergy.

He was always telling us that it’s a crime to build a cement factory inside the city, he told us that in other countries the cement factory is always placed outside the city and very far from it.

That day I went to see the cement factory area in a real Windy day before the rain has started , and I was shocked : all the area in front the cement factory was white , the trees where white , the ground was white , every thing !!!!

It is a sad thing to see, not talking about the effects of the pollution too!!!!

I think the sad thing is that the cement factory will always stays in its place in Benghazi, but my old doctor will die some day!!!
