Alban Wady El-Neel

July 3, 2015


Going through a journey in the streets of the empty city, except from him and his beloved, loaded with unsteady and contradictory feelings towards her, after their relationship had come to an end recently. Despite his belief that their separation is better for both of them, he could not get the idea of her passage before his eyes without even exchanging greetings.He runs in the streets of the empty city, trying to catch her; she on her tricycle and he, after her, on foot. Out of breath, he reaches the milk shop “Alban Wady El-Neel” at the end of his journey, unable to define what feelings he carries for her, any longer.
