Just in case Thursday's post left a bad taste in your mouth, here's a happier take on our summer in Egypt. Presenting: our favorite memories!
Sadly, just visiting, not living there.
Sending Miriam to a neighborhood summer day camp for a few weeks.
Best decision of the whole summer, and Miriam agrees.
Except for maybe the decision to buy a kiddie pool and put it on our balcony.
Visiting Ibn Tuloun Mosque.
That place is awesome, and you can climb the minaret!
Watching World Cup games.
Jeremy got the best game - watching Algeria vs. USA
in an all-Egyptian cafe. I got the short end of the stick with Ghana vs. USA in an all-Egyptian cafe. Let's just say I was the only one cheering for America.
Staying with the Heisses
and watching Miriam color with Rachel for hours on end. Seriously, hours.
Discovering a used bookstore called Bookspot
. They sell used books for cheap, then buy them back from you. AND THEY DELIVER.
Rocking the Khan al-Khalili's world
when we went there with a friend and her kids for a grand total of three blonde-haired, blue-eyed adults and five blonde-haired, blue-eyed children, ages 4, 3, 2, 1, and 0. It is possible we left some of the vendors with the impression that both us women were Jeremy's wives...
You know what my absolute favorite memory from this summer was? Our trip to Syria.
Hands down, no contest. That place is amazing.
Aaaaaand that's it from me until we're back in America!
