@Sr Shahida - It is quite beautiful, but I will not miss the dog poop on the sidewalks and the general uncleanness of the place. But of course, it has grown on me, as I think any place would after 6 years - especially when one considers the struggles that came with it.
Europe does have that old charm and in one of my early years here - I was in this same square (Old Town Square) at around sunset - VERY romantic I must say
Do watch the last video at least Sis when you are in a more friendly environment - I point out roughly where my apartment is!
@ Sis Jannah - hahah, yeah baguette, some chai and sitting outside taking in the sights and sounds / people-watching (if you're into that sort of thing, lol) - sounds good to me!
Finishing? Well, yeah two more days to go! Home on Friday insha'allah! Met a friend today (just got back a bit ago) for dinner at a relatively close by Indian restaurant that I had only been to once before. Was yummy of course.
Have taken care of the bank account last week (when Amma was still here) and the phone/internet account as well. Just have to stop by school once more - I should mention, that the diploma takes about a month to prepare and as I have to get back to prep for the board exams, I wasn't going to wait around for that and they don't post it by mail either. Reason being, I have to sign this big Book of Doctors in the old part of the city, where every doctor that has every graduated from either of the 3 med schools, have signed their name. SO, I will be coming back later next year for a day or two to get my actual degree/diploma. I won't be staying for the graduation ceremony either, which is next month (there was one in July as well, for those who finished on time in June).
If anyone is interested, I have a bunch more pictures from earlier
on my Flickr account - here is the link to the set (72 photos, with captions on those from before): http://www.flickr.com/photos/39398716@N07/sets/72157625280976988/
Insha'allah, getting a picture of myself taken for something related to my city's basketball team's Official Fan website, so I guess I can post that here - I know maybe you guys wanted a pic of me in my white coat and stethoscope, but both of those items are back home, so maybe I can post a pic of me in that outfit when I get back . . .who wants to see that? Anyone?
