I wanted to write a blog for my friends and family to give them some details on living in Egypt and my various travels throughout Europe and the middle East. Instead of constant e-mails with photos, I thought this format might be more useful.
Contrary to popular belief, Egypt is not all pyramids and sand. I currently live in Alexandria, a city just on the Meditteranean sea, and two hours west of Cairo. The climate is cool with the sea winds but hot once you get out of the shade. Clear, blue skies fill the days. It is a muslim country and the people here are very serious about living an Islamic lifestyle.
I’ll be posting some thoughts, observances, and travel tips in my “Foreign Travels” blog.
