  2. What kind of engineer did you used to be? Your story reminds me of someome I talked to, he is or was a petroleum engineer. But it might be a coincidence.


      • Did you play a game called Knights and Dragons under the name Mido by any chance? I talked to him often and he was a friend of mine. Your stories really look a like, he was on an app called line messenger under the name M Sheshtaway. It might be a really strange coincidence tough. Love your work tough I came across it, I just started photography my self.
