My heart is torn between East and West. I live somewhere between the present and the past. I don't know who I am.
Just another human being biding their time on this earth. Passionate about current affairs, history, politics (particularly MENA region), religion, cute animals and food. Posts are mainly in English but I may post in Arabic/French/Turkish.

Little Boy, Chicken, and Cross of Straw, Luotiancun village, near Nanchang, China
“I had attended my friend’s wedding in Nanchang, central China. The next day, a friend and I ventured into the countryside, and after riding a series of ever-smaller buses, we wound up in a village called Luotiancun, where the locals were harvesting rice and burning the fields.
As his family worked, this young boy watched me silently and earnestly. A chicken wandered past, disinterested.
The rice fields were burning just beyond us, thick with white smoke.”
