Settling in

Posted by len on February 8th, 2007

Sue and I were just talking about how time seems to be sailing by here in Cairo compared with Morocco. We figure that the experience is probably due to a) we are more seasoned at living overseas and in the Middle East, b) we have heat so are not constantly struggling to stay warm, c) we can get a burger any time we feel like it. In any case, the days are moving quickly by (kind of like normal life). Sue is still liking her classes and I’m trying to get 30 hour weeks in on my animation project in addition to (very) slowly learning Egyptian Arabic and other miscellaneous tasks (like updating the Squid!). Here are some photos we took of our apartment (sorry we didn’t clean first) to give you all a taste of day-to-day life in the land of the Pharoahs.

    Ineresting floor tile. Have you been craagging rugs around or did they come with the place?

    We brought one rug from Morocco but it’s still rolled up.
    These rugs all came with the place. In addition, the kitchen is pretty well-stocked with pots, pans, plates, etc.
    No espresso machine however. So we are slowly dying…

    Looks as if you are living in luxury! If the weather is nasty you can have running races in the hallway! Also sounds as if the beds might need “memory foam” from Target. It really does help “stiff beds” but then where is a Target when you need one.
