Alexandria, Egypt preview

Jeremy did some reconnaissance work while he was in Egypt, and even brought back pictures of things besides his hotel room at night. It looks like the Middle East is every bit as

romantic:


atmospheric:

random:

and quirky:

as I remember it.

As for Alexandria, my first impressions of it via pictures are that it is really...clean.

And just look at all those shebaab (dudes) hanging out on the Corniche, waiting to ogle me. Looks like I need to break out my stash of butt-covering shirts again.

I hope you've enjoyed this little taste of how awesome this blog is going to be, come summer 2010. I can just feel the adventures waiting to happen!

Gorgeous! I am so jealous!

Eee! Between your blog and the Heisses' and the fact that I leave for Cairo in 1 month and 1 day, I can hardly stand it!

Trina said...

WOW, what an interesting Place. It looks big and populated, yet plain and simple. I can't wait to see how living there turns out.

Lisa Lou said...

Oh man. Such fun adventures!

Lilianne said...

Awesome! So, just to warn you: EVERY girl that I know who has been to Egypt has been groped by a nasty man. I pray and hope this never happens to you!!

It will be fun to hear about your adventures!

Amanda said...

Did Jeremy smell the air while he was there? I hear that's what they do instead of Easter.

Bridget said...

Lili, I've been to Egypt before and I've never been groped. So you'll have to start a new list! I hope to stay on the right side of it forever. :)

Amanda, I had never heard of such a thing until now. Thanks. I guess.

I was safe in Egypt as well...not so lucky in Jordan. One time in a DVD store the owner placed his hand on my backside as he was explaining to Jason the merits of Aquamarina. I'd like to think it was unintentional and had something to do with the fact that his shop was actually just a staircase hallway and we all on multiple levels but still uncomfortable. Why didn't I say something...Awkward! I'm excited for you. Can't wait to hear all your awesome stories!!! All you guys' fun stories makes the midwest a little easier to take!

Bridget, It's nice to virtually meet you! What a small world. Between Tucson, Egypt, Startalk and it looks like we both might know Layla (of the Grass is Greener) it seems we have some things in common. What brought you guys to Tucson? And now Ithaca? Hope I'm not being too nosey :)

Bridget said...

Hahahaha, I don't actually know Layla at all, even though you'd think I'd have run into her somehow by now. I kept coming across her blog through multiple sources, but I think my closest link is through the Heisses, who your brother may know. SMALL WORLD. Especially when you combine the Middle East with Mormons.

(PS, we were in Tucson for Jeremy's PhD, and we are in Ithaca for him to work at Cornell.)

Very cool pics. I need to travel more...

You are one lucky girl. You are living a life of adventure that I dream about (and will most likely never have). I am in love with Change and traveling the world, and I fear I will be stuck in this rainy NW for the rest of my life! HELP!
I will live through your adventures. Thanks for posting them all!!
