5 Maryam is really surprised towards the information she receives from her daughter. She sounds disappointed. She obviously would have liked being informed before but she doesn’t say a word The couple hided his decision. Her daughter and her husband didn’t want to keep her informed and she feels very sad.

6 Maryam learns that their friends, the Donaldson heard the new they were going to move in Mount Washington before herself and she really feels frustrated and betrayed. As Ziba’s mother she just feels she would have been informed at first and she is amazed by their behaviour because she feels quite close of them and particularly of Susan, their daughter.

7 Sami says that he feels that Mount Washington district is more « upper class » than Roland Park where Maryam lives. The « général atmosphère » probably means that this place has a better réputation to grow up children and live. Moreover their best friends live there also and their chilfren get on well.
