It has been raining and a bit miserable this weekend but that is London, it is all part of living here. Amir my 6 year old son has been asking me for some time to take him out on his bicycle which he had for over a year but only ridden few times, mainly because of the weather and me being lazy, so yesterday afternoon I took him and bike out for a ride on the pavement and around the block, after few minutes of bending down to hold the bike and giving him few pushes I felt my back snap but I had to continue going and pushing and encouraging him until he had enough and said he wanted to go home, believe me that was a relief for me and my poor back.
This morning I have a very stiff back and move like a Hyena, if only kids knew what their parents have to go through just to keep them happy but I suppose I must have caused my parents to have sore backs too, this is life!
On another subject, the other day I was walking in an area in London called Maida Vale on the Edgware Road, not far from the famous Arab haunts, I passed by the building that you can see in the picture below which is called STUART TOWERS and I remembred when 5 or 6 years ago this building made headline news in many Arabic countries, can any one guess what happened there?
I will give some clues, if you are not an Arab or middleeastern then it is unlikely that you would know the answer, this building was associated with a very famous Arab.
Go on guess who it was and what happened!!
UPDATE: That was very easy I think, lebeeya got the right answer straight away and she wins a bag of WALKERS crisps! In 2001 The Egytian actress Soad Husni سعاد حسني jumped from one of the top floors of STUART TOWERS building and killed herself, strange thing I just found out on Wikipedia, it says the actress was murdred before her body was thrown from the top, this I never knew before, as far as I know she committed suicide.
