today’s the day!

In exactly 8 hours my flight leaves to Madinah! I can’t wait. I’ve been feeling really excited but today for some reason I’m calm. I’m worrying about all the things that Umrah entails and hoping I don’t forget anything. If it’s already complicated I can’t imagine what Hajj will be like. On top of that you’ll have millions of people.
I’m really excited about seeing so many people from so many different countries. It should be a nice experience. I keep remembering Malcolm X’s quote when he went to Mecca, about how he had never thought he would see equality between people, but he saw it there. Of course I’m sure everyone there won’t be perfectly well-behaved or courteous but still, the atmosphere should be unforgettable.
I’ll be taking my laptop with me so I’ll update as much as I can, especially with pics :).
