Grade 6



Home to me is Canada, but I was born in a beautiful country named Egypt. I moved to Canada when I was five months old. I grew up in Canada but every now and then on summer break my family and I go to Egypt to see my relatives. I enjoy spending time with my uncle, especially when we hang out on our big family balcony together. When we went to Egypt and spent our time there, we went to the pyramids it was all sandy and rode camels and horses with my cousins and friends. At first I was scared to get on the camel because of the way they stand up. This experience was the best time ever because not everywhere in the world has camels. My family friends that live in Canada were in Egypt at the time, so they came with us too so it became even more fun. All of these experiences have helped me understand my meaning of home.
