    Al salam alaikum-

    Gotta love Egypt! When I was there earlier this year, there were so many things I saw that just made me shake my head...the gas station attendant with a lit cigarette right at the pump, in Al Fayoum, we saw probably 6 guys riding in a boat on top of a car, how scary! Are you completely adjusted to life in Egypt? It's a wholly different way of life, and the people have an interesting viewpoint on things. I really miss my FIL over there...

  2. Alaikum alslam, yea Anon, I do a lot of head shaking, eyerolling etc. Not completely adjusted, but kinda so. I've seen kids sitting in open car trunks on the highway. It's totally normal to see a family of 4 or 5 riding a motorcycle!
