DP Daily Prompt: Helping Hand Post by Ranu
This experience takes place in Makkah. My husband,his cousin, his family and I were travelling on the bus. The bus driver was supposed to take us to Muzdalifa where we were supposed to spend the night and come back to Makkah,the following morning. Suddenly the driver stopped and told us to get off. We had no idea where we were. My husband’s cousin,knew a few words of Arabic,he tried to explain,we won’t find our way.It was dark and deserted. The driver kept yelling and told us to get off. Miraculously someone showed up,he was an Egyptian. He had a heated dialogue with the driver and was able to convince him to drop us off at the taxi stand. To be sure he boarded the bus with us. We all got off to hire a cab.The nice man called a cab driver, told him in Arabic to drop us off in Muzdalifa. We thanked him and got in the cab. We reached our destination safely. I will always remember this.
