Thursday, 5th July — Erbil, Doha

Sitting there at the airport in Erbil while waiting for my flight check-in, it felt nice to have a little money. It did not really fluster me to buy a juice and a pastry. But for so much of my life, that type of thing would have really set me back. It would have been unaffordable.

"Do you feel like you don't belong anymore?" asked Mehmet about visiting America, a week or so earlier. My answer had been emphatic: "No!" Actually, it was before moving to Erbil that I had not felt like I belonged in America. But now, returning with money to spend, it finally felt like I belonged. Gone were the days
