Back in DC

After a cold spell, our last day in Pakistan was filled with the beautiful relief of sunshine. That night, we went on the roof with my baji and little cousins and looked at the stars as they covered our sleepy village. The electricity was gone and the black night sky was more filled with stars than I have ever seen. It felt like the whole galaxy was about to drop down on us. I so badly wanted to hold on to that moment. To make sure that age and experience did not push it to some inaccessible recess of my mind. Today is our first day back in America and I cannot express how sad my heart is to be away from my cousins, grandparents and the rest of the family.
