Golden Anniversary

My In-laws wedding photo from 1962

Fifty years ago today, my in-laws got married.  Technically they signed the “kettel khitab” or marriage contract.

Today we are in Cairo at the Pasha Restaurant on the Nile celebrating with family and friends.

This is the second Golden Anniversary I have celebrated.  The first was my grandparents.

I wonder whether Mojo and I will celebrate our 50th?  I wonder what the world will be like in 35 years.

    I love the photo! Alf Mabruk! Congratulations to them both.

    re: “kettel khitab”: transliteration from Arabic to English does vary, but “kateb el kitab” is more accurate. Literally it means “writing the book”.

    Wow, you can really see the father-son resemblance in that photo! And Maman hasn’t changed a bit – I see where the boys get their cheekbones!
