Egypt isn't what it appears to be in the media...but that's no real surprise, since not much is. I moved here in the late 80's from Toronto, Canada, with my Canadian/Egyptian husband, my son and my daughter. The children adapted quickly and we decided that this country was a good place to live. Now I wouldn't change my home for anything.
Having spent the morning cleaning up the grass at the paddocks, I decided that it was entirely too hot for any serious activity so my daughter and I took her friend into the desert to examine pyramids. 3 pm on an August afternoon may not seem like a great time for desert driving, but it was gorgeous. A strong breeze cooled us just enough, no sound at all on the air. We ambled around looking at nice rocks. One of the pyramids that I wanted the girls to see was this one that was constructed of millions of mud bricks. Gradually, it is collapsing, but right now it is just amazing.
