“I am 67 years old, I’m originally from Rojava from Kobane, but I’ve been living in Erbil for eight years. I love flower, especially how colorful they are, and mostly red and white. Every morning I get out of my house and take a walk on Erbil’s streets, and sometimes I go to the bazaar. I take some time to sit, smell my flowers, and watch people go by and hear how they talk, I want to guess where they come from by the way they talk. Whenever I know someone is from Rojava, I go and ask them from where from Rojava they come from. When I hear Kobane, I sometimes start to cry a little, and sometimes I feel like I have holy water in front of me and I’m finally breaking my thirst for my country”.
