After several days of temperatures over 100 degrees, we finally got some rain today ... my little niece Asia had surgery this morning and when it was over, we were waiting outside for the car to come around. Maya took a moment to walk off into the rain. If you remember from your studies, the Nile River used to rise up and saturate the fields allowing for the seasonal growth of papyrus. It rarely rains in Egypt so while visiting DC the opportunity for Maya to experience rainfall is precious to her, just like knowing her little sister is going to be okay. This is one of those times when something we are grateful for means just a little bit more to someone else.
