Underneath the dust

“She is beautiful but her beauty is appreciated when you look closely at her”this is an expression I heard from someone but he was not talking about Egypt ,but the description fits her perfectly.
There is an ancient feeling emanating from its earth , there is a story in every corner, she has witnessed so many events and adventures, there is a sense of danger about her people , you fear them , yet they can be very kind and genuine , her people have a very rich genetic pool , just like the states , that’s what our physiology professor used to say about our genetics , we have been occupied by so many civilizations or cultures for over 3000 years, before that we had our unique hand made stone wall carved identity , and this identity was tarnished by some and polished by other invading civilizations, yet nowadays we are considered so powerful , and we are a strong player in the game of power balance in the world ,especially between States ,Middle East golf counties ,Europe and Russia ,our power doesn’t stem from arms but from us as people it’s called SOFT power ,so they say! I was surprised when I heard this expression , I heard them repeat this many times , well they have but rather we have our way of looking at life , every nation has it’s way at looking at things.
Every nation has it’s own perspective about things depending on its history and experience weather it has been invaded or an invader well it depends, but a common thing about all ancient countries is that this deep believe in the supernatural plus or minus submission to it or submission in general.
Submission comes from control and control is either physical or mental.
Ancient countries doesn’t need too much physical control.
There is something enchanting in every corner , so many intriguing stories full of manipulation , deceit ,passion anger and any feeling or attitude you can think of.
But the question is how far you can go to maintain your identity to and preserve it , we have a famous idiom “a trait extends to 7th grand father” meaning that you might have a trait tracking back to your great great grand father.
If there is anything real I want to say , is that there is a jewel hidden underneath all this dust and traffic chaos.
