I’m going to go to Jerusalem and see Christian churches and Jewish temples and Muslim mosques. im going to go back to Barcelona to get coffee in those cafés and buy flowers at the market. im going to go to Egypt and stand in the shadow of the sphinx. and none of this will probably happen but I have to believe it will.
