Things worked out just fine. The hotel we landed in had three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Can’t complain about that. My fabulous sponsor had a wifi internet stick all set up and ready for us to connect with. We did get a good nights rest. We had a couple weeks to overcome jet lag and watch the street people below our balcony. 🙂 Everything worked out
Fast forward one month …. We are in the house, we got the internet all connected, we got our stuff delivered, we got our stuff put away. Julia’s here! My housekeeper, Rere, she is my favorite person in all of Egypt. Ha! Really, she’s awesome and keeps this huge house spotless and does the laundry, and cooks! The gardener keeps the yard spotless. The Boab is growing on me .. he might be a little more likable than I first thought. Egypt is treating me very well.
So far, we have gone on a felucca ride on the Nile, been to City Stars mall, seen the Gold Island in the middle of the Nile, been to the Khan a couple times, seen Tahrir Square, seen the Pyramids and the Sphinx, walked our way through part of the massive Egyptian Museum (that place is huge). We have a BBQ planed for Friday and a tour of Saqqara and Memphis on Saturday!
So … we’ve done all that and the thing I’m feeling most proud these days is my new found ability to ride a taxi cab. Just sayin’
Life in Egypt is good.
