Buy if I want to, you would buy too if you were in Egypt and things were really cheap and you found a beautiful bedspread and you hadn't been shopping for 10 months . . .
So I had a wonderful birthday on Sunday, Marc rented a room at the Hilton (at a very reduced price after a lot of haggling) and we had a beautiful view of the Nile from our balcony.
We spent the day (after an amazing buffet breakfast) purchasing and shipping a beautiful new bedspread that I had fallen in love with two days previously. I also bought a new sweater that seem to be all the rage here in Egypt.
We spent the day today climbing Mount Sinai but that is another post altogether! Off to get warm in our camp (it is freezing here! Well maybe not like Canada cold but cold nonetheless).
