I'm off to Cairo this weekend for a week! I've been brushing up on my Arabic (not that I had much to begin with, but I now know a few key phrases) and ironing my summer clothes. My fog tan is perfectly intact and I have buckets of sunscreen to keep it that way.
I have never been to Egypt. Hard to believe, seeing as how I'm married to an Egyptian and everyone and their dog seems to have been there. But whenever we've had holidays, we've usually travelled to Canada or done our own thing. I can't wait to see where The Man grew up and meet his extended family.
Engrossed in London promotion and Paris research, I haven't had much time to read about Cairo. But I've got a book from the library today and I'll read on the plane!
If anyone has some tips for me, please let me know. In the meantime, I have a few scheduled posts from the archives while I'm away... just on the off chance that anyone will miss me!
