A Generic Face in Egypt


3 observations from Egypt as I sit with a shisha and a black coffee....
1. I have a love-hate relationship with Egypt. I really dislike the noise and congestion but I love the bustle and the sight of busy streets long into the evening.
2. The Karnak temple (see picture) was amazing at sunset and topped off the trip to Luxor perfectly.
3. Whenever I travel, I frequently get mistaken for being a local but I am not sure why. This has happened in Brazil, Mexico, Morocco and Egypt. Oddly enough it never happens in India. I wish I could speak a bit of arabic and get local prices...
