In Egypt, when your plastic lawn chair breaks, you do not buy a new one. You fix the old one. Multiple times if necessary.
For fun, here are the rules at Al-Azhar Park. Please note that you may NOT bring alcoholics inside the park.
We went to the Cairo Zoo and it was slightly less terrifying than I'd imagined. I do fear for the feral cats and kittens who have taken up residence there, though, because most of the animals looked hungry enough to do something desperate. Watch your back, little one.
People who have lived here longer than us are always saying things like, "oh, when it's not hazy you can see the Pyramids from here." What they fail to mention is that IT IS NEVER NOT HAZY. This is the view out our back window the other evening, around the same time Google Weather told me that the current weather in Cairo was "Sand." What the?!?
We have these shiny blue floors in our apartment and they are great fun to mop. But not so fun that I want to do it again 15 minutes after I finished, which is when this little accident happened. Sigh.
This guy passes me in the morning when I'm walking Miriam to her summer school and I finally caught a picture of him. What you can't really see is that he has ANOTHER kid perched on the handlebars. Brilliant family transportation, I say.
I saw this sign outside of a daycare center and I have mixed feelings about it. I mean, it's kind of true, at least at times, but you also kind of shouldn't say it, you know? I'm referring to the "Get Your Life Back" slogan at the bottom of the poster.
I think that's it for now!
