Most things disappear from your field of vision without your being aware of it. You���re not conscious that something has disappeared until you suddenly see it again. So it was this evening at the Caf�� Horreya. Beside me are sitting Yafa and her husband. She tells me that they���re married to each other for the second time. They divorced because they were always busy with other things and in the end weren���t there for each other anymore. Her husband protests in Egyptian when he hears her explanation of their divorce. A discussion follows between them from which I am excluded. They argue, get angry, listen attentively to each other - and then something happens that I haven���t seen in a very long time. They lean towards each other and kiss, right in the middle of the caf��.
Kissing in public is illegal by law in egypt.
