First Real rain storm I've seen in a year and 4 months

While my BFF Shannon was here from the states we drove to Saint Katherine's Monastery and on our way back the clouds started building. Now we have seen this before in Ma'adi where the clouds will build then nothing. This time the heaven's opened and it rained. We were almost to the Suez Canal tunnel. We sure enjoyed watching those windshield wipers work fast!!

EL CHICO @ City Stars now open!!

I received my new Egypt Today Magazine and there was an ad saying the new EL Chico restaurant in the City Stars Mall was now open so several of us on our Team went over Thurs to try in out. OMG it was so good! So if you like EL Chico in the states go try it. It's only been open for 10 days!! Brand spanking new.
Sorry no pictures to go along with this post wished I had though cause it was great!

Visitors from home (Texas)

My best friend Shannon came to Egypt again this year for her vacation and we have had the best time. We did things that we didn't get to do last year and did things at a more leisurely pace. It was a great two weeks although it flew by of course.
So this year we went on the Coptic Church Tour, went to Saint Katherine's to see the monastery and drove ourselves so that we could stop at the Moses' wells, we went to an Ecological museum, went to the Step pyramids, went to the Khan and walking on Road 9 of course, we ate at the Hard Rock Hotel down town Cairo, drove by the Giza pyramids, shopped for papyrus paper, went to Fueago's to eat dinner and best of all had lots of girl talk time!!!

Can't wait to get copies of Shannon's pictures!!
