Ten years into exile.

I've heard of the prohibition of the integral veil in the Swiss canton where i spent my life until the marriage and the transfer to Bahrain, it's a funny twist of fate, it's awful that i can't  come back to my homeland veiled as required by my family. In the beginning it was a shock, the climate, food, the niqab, everything was traumatic for me, used to a common life as an european teenager but now i'm part of this community and i have a role in the education of my children. In the meantime i gave birth to my 6th child, he's a boy and i hope the last. But never say never, i'm only 29 y.o. :-)
