She accepted me as a guest, has covered a rich meal, for which we were sitting on the floor, as they have at home. ( “Just can not find on the Internet cheap table”). I looked at the blue bowls of gold – at our house there are several of these, listened to her story about ethnic clashes in the country, after the next wave that her father – Honored teacher and director of the school, but, alas, a person “wrong” nationality – had to get away from work, and she and her husband – to leave to look for work in Russia. And she told how they flew in-law’s funeral.

husband’s mother was ill for many years, but her death was still sudden. At the very least, a phone call to her husband, when everything has already happened. And they said, “we will bury Friday because all buried on Friday go to heaven.” That is, tomorrow.

And three of them – the husband, the husband’s brother, and she is – began to seek money first, and then the plane tickets. She knew the house, as usual, it will not be allowed into the mosque – only to wake, but flew with her husband, because we need.

We got some kind of a night flight, but instead of their native city, where there was a fog, he sat down in the capital, and it was impossible to get out in any way at night. Brothers late for my mother’s funeral, looking at them, she also depressed. Then at six o’clock she called the father:

– You see, – said the old teacher – you’re a woman and your husband is now easy. And you have to support him. If you now still plastered and you happen something unpleasant. You will lose documents, money, someone get hurt or something else like that. Pull yourself together.

And she was going. And they had.

Sometimes, when I look at the eastern girls on our streets, I think they know something that we have – a strong and independent – have long forgotten.
