Hello and welcome to our new post. We’re approaching the 4th of July. You know what this means. A lot of celebrations, and a lot of fun. It coincide as I heard in the Radio while driving yesterday, with Ramadan end, and the celebration for Eid Al-Fitr, which is also a lot of celebrations, and a lot of fun.┬á

I wish I could celebrate every single occasion in our whole beautiful world. I really love all the occasions where I see people happy laughing at each other engaging and relaxed.

My dear 1Zumba friend, here’s you question no. 33 in our 100 Questions competition:

Q33-1Z

Last week I had to go to San Jose, CA. I can’t tell you how hard it was for me to do that. Not because of the road or the distance, but coz of the similarity of street names. OMG. I used my GPS, the one in my ┬ácar, and the one I had in my smart phone. Neither of them was able to locate exactly the address I was going to.┬á

The joke was that It was a Federal Government building, or may be that was why the GPS couldn’t find it in the first place. I really don’t know the reason, but all I know is that I was taken to the exact address in another city near San Jose. When I tried to get from that spot to the correct spot, it took me 3 hours.

Every time, I followed the directions of my GPS or of someone who claimed that he knew where that address was, I ended up in nowhere. Of course you know how crowed the highway is when it’s time to go to work in the morning, or when you’re going back home at 5 pm

I gave up, n I stopped at a Starbucks for coffee, n I asked the attendants there if they knew that address, one of them volunteered to use her GPS, n she promptly said, it was right behind us. You wouldn’t imagine how I felt at that time. Oh! The other problem was to find a parking spot. But anyway, I took the directions n walked. It was 3 hours past my appointment time.

People were waiting for me for almost four hours, and every time, I had that thought in my mind, I felt terrible. I went to that description, I found a building for small businesses, where a hair salon lady told me she never heard about that address, and that on 4th St., and I should be on 3rd St.

Oh! Another thing was that 3rd St was one way, n 4th St was one way in the opposite direction, and I kept going back n forth between those two streets FOREVER!

So I called the people who were waiting one more time, who didn’t not answer, but getting my voice messages n acting accordingly, calling me back n leaving voice messages too. I told them I gave up, n that nobody knew where that building was.

I crossed the street, glanced accidentally at the corner, right opposite to my sight, that fancy building with its number in very large letters, n guess what, it was the damn building I was supposed to be in before four or five  hours

Reaching my destination, I wasn’t sure how to explain all that ┬ádelay, except that they were apparently aware that that was happening to everyone who tried to reach them, so they were in no surprise, but I was
