My last day in Japan was full and very emotional, I felt really sad T_T that my journey will come to an end, it wasn’t just a trip to some country , it was much more , an experience of a life time with 53 nice people from 50 different countries , it was a dream that came true for me.
The last day party was really amazing, kumagai san asked some participants to make a performance in front of our Japanese families that were really kind to spend a day with us ^^
When kumagai san asked us “is there is anyone who wants to make a performance??” I was confused , should I make one or not , eventually I thought that it would be very nice if I could sing an arabic song, this way I could feel that I represented my country in some way , so I sang an Arabic song which is called “sahar al layali “ ,it is for a famous Lebanese singer ( Fairouz) , this song was my Egyptian friends( mai san) choice( good choice ^_^).
Of course special thanks to Andres san who really helped me a lot in my performance , he played the guitar along with me ,although Andres san didn’t know the song before , but he could play the song in just 20 minutes , I was really surprised and impressed by him.
My host family told me that they will be busy and that they can’t come to the party, so I wasn’t expecting to see them, but to my surprise they came, and I was really glad and touched especially when akemi san (my Japanese mom) told me that she thought that I will feel lonely seeing all the participant’s host family by their side, I am glad that I met such nice people in my life ^^

Marco san said about this video "These may not be the most noisy or high tech places I visited in Japan, but it is the Japan I fell in love with" , I agree with him and for me too these places were the places I fell in love with.
This video made my tears flow thinking of the places I love the most and also the song is the favorite song for kosuke san T_T
By the way, I tried to stay awake the last night in Japan but I couldn’t, my body couldn’t take it, Daniel san tried to wake me up but he couldn’t, I remember when I said good bye to everyone with a big smile in my face but inside my heart tears were flowing, after I said goodbye to everyone, I cried in the bus in my way to the airport, this is an emotion I will never forget T_T
Japan, I love you from the bottom of my heart , and to all the people whose dream is going to Japan , I will tell you that Japan is definitely worth it , so work hard and do your best and Japan will become a reality the same way it became for me.
Yes Japan is a dream, but it’s a dream that can come true, remember that ^^
