First weekend in Cairo

19 Jun

I did lots of things this weekend. I will illustrate this through pictures. BTW, this being a Arab country and all, the weekend is now on Friday and Saturday instead of Saturday and Sunday. This is going to take some getting used to.

Dinner at Sequoia on Thursday night. A little Oasis in the madness that is Cairo.

A little champagne to celebrate my arrival (on the felucca on Friday)

Our trusty captain

All the peeps on the felucca

Lunch and beers at the British Club in Maadi

Supper on our terrace!

Shaun with his coworkers at the end of the party at the Maadi House Friday night

Went to check out the Marriott on Saturday - this is the entrance

Juice in the courtyard at the Marriott on Saturday afternoon

Egypt has really good fresh squeezed juice - yum!

A very impressive stairway in the Marriott

It was a great first weekend. I’ll write more about my thoughts about Cairo in a later post. This will suffice for now!
