We've had cold winds from the north, black clouds and rain for the last couple of days. Not really your average Egyptian March weather, although this month in the old Coptic calendar is known for its changeability and winds. Sitting around in offices that are built much more to shed heat than to keep it in, my feet are freezing and my hands get so cold that my typing is clumsy. We are all joking that the weather was especially ordered to keep the American soldiers in Iraq more comfortable....feeling like home in Nebraska. Just got offline with my daughter in New York. Her big news is that they have sun and she wants to go outside and sit in it. Must be nice. But then cold weather here is more of an oddity than a trial.
