Home Sweet Home

by - 5:04 PM


I was so thrilled when I found that the volunteer house I was going to stay in has a cozy living room like this – plush pillows and carpets on the floor, typical of how Arabic people like to furnish their homes. This is how I want my home to be. I think it’s so much more comfortable, and when you invite people to sit with you – this is the way to really sit. Maybe my friends in the Western reality will think it’s ridiculous and awkward, but I think the opposite! I love sitting with people like this, you feel closer to people and you feel less awkward, because you’re both sitting in the same place and in the same way – you can put useless formalities aside and talk as friends, and not mere acquaintances.
