To CANADA once more


writing in English is not my choice ..it is not even a FAZLAKA from my side ....it is a take it or leave it choice ...since my friend's laptop is a KHawaga one having no arabic letters & I am in his house now in Ottawa Canada ...wokeup 2AM as usual everybody is asleep sneeking out to the living room to find something to do while being active like I always am at that early hours ...this is ARAFAT Day so we are fasting as we do at home this is a great day to fast ....I arrived at OTTAWA airport 8pm last night after spending 17 hrs sitting in a seat flying & waiting for a connection flight .....I was the only passenger wearing a short sleeve shirt while checking out every body else in a coat ...but being inside the Heathrow AP made feel no cold except some sneezing every now & then -crowded as usual place every body is running to his gate or coffeshop the security measurs are very strict searching suspected people made lines so long ..finishing the security search I found a young man raising a sign having my name in a big font >>Mr Hassanin ...yes go to the counter & get your boarding <<>>felt important while riding among all those rushing around >>>this is AIR CANADA ..a company that respect the client making it easier for him to go ...now I had to delay my watch 2 hrs >>> the boarding gate was rather far so I just arrived on time >>but the plane was delayed for 55min due to storms & turbelance over the atlantic >>>so I was alittle pit worried about my next connection (Monterial-Ottawa) ... the plane was so nice & neat with a nice service >>It was fully booked <<
sat beside an Egyptian cople with their newly born baby ....they soon moved to an other posion where they can lay the infant ahead ...that gave me a vacant seat to my left & so I have a room to change my posture every now& then & to stretch my legs too ....it is a 7-hrs-trip across the atlantic ....I always follow up the flight details through the screen ahead watched a nice movie by Meryl strib named Jolie & Julia this actress is really talented & very naturally acting ...but I have some food requested by halim namely a drum of GEBNA ROOMY BATREKH - wrapped in a 8 layers of plastic bags
!!!Alhamdo lellah it worked out they trusted me being an old man ...In Canada you have to be checked in the first international port you land in even your destination is different so I got myself & my baggage checked in monteal though Iam heading to Ottawa the Capital >> lines were abnormally long long & that made me worried to loose my next flight to Ottawa >>but I managed to do it on time ...flight was delayed because one passenger put his baggage in side the plane but did not show up so they had to unload his baggage from the plane for security reasons ..Halim awaiting me ...Ottawa was cooooooolllldddd!! it was 7 degrees above zero & we came from a city of 31 degrees in a hot front in Cairo?? that was my first night in CANADA 2

Allah ysallemak >>>Halim is sending you his regards >>>it is cold over here but a nice city , I did not expect that big # of Muslems to be there in the 3eed prayer this morning >>3eed has no signs here except this gathering in the early morning with takbeerat al 3eed & the muslem kids running around in their new clothes ...every body else is working as normal

this is my 1st time to go intentionally out to spend the 3eed away from my family & that far it is because I promised my friend to go back to him by the end of the year ,we grew up together & we are close friends for 45 years >> keeping promises is one value that I never deviate from ,when I say >>I do ..also it is a new experience to see what this country look like in its coolist monthes of the year ??Koll sana wenty tayyebah

حمدا لله على سلامة الوصول كندا يا فندم

بس هو حضرتك لم تبحث عن الطقس هناك قبل السفر

كنت حقك تاخد جاكيت تقيل وللا حاجة

غير احترام شركة الطيران

يا ريت حضرتك تقولنا ايه في كندا

كان نفسك يكون في مصر ؟؟

ok hebah I took a good hevy clothes & my friends here are supplyig me with the super heavy ones , so do not worry I am surviving & enjoing the cold weather ..it is clean -real clean country >>people are smiling to your face they do you favours without knowing you.. every one is trying to make life easier to the others not hindering them no body looks at what others do or wear or earn - every job is respected - even gabage collectors are respected & they have strict rules to collect it (glass- plastics -papers - furnature) are separated upon collection<< older people are highly respected & shelterd with high standard medical care & transportatin too - no smoking is allowed any where - level of education is high & they give a chance to over- seas good students to comever & get higer degrees ..they offer scolarships young men here are not tied to the family much they travel away for better chances of work & study >>>here if you have a talant you can win a good chance & earn money well also you can not work in any technical work unless you are certified ( plummer -carpenter -hair dresser - eletrician etc) all have to attend courses get tested before doing any work unlike here in EGYPT any body would claim any job & doing a mess <<<that is some of things I noticed during my 2 visits to Canada one more thing I like it here buses come to stops on time you can know when it arrives to your stop by min & second so you do not wast time waiting out - you can get the dayly scheduel by net so you go out on time the bus is there !!! & they never late
