Egypt life

Descriptive words for life in Egypt: Crazy, hot, dusty,dirty,Islamic, historical, noisy, hard and testing.


I think all my descriptive words sums up Egypt really well.
One needs millions upon millions of patience to live here.(if that's even possible)
Alhumdulillah, we have survived 5 months here and I think we will be here for a while unless Allah relocates us to a better place. Ameen

I feel my kids are learning wonderful things and their Arabic and Quraan has been progressing very well.For this reason we need to be patient here.The school my kids are going to teaches English and Math plus Science in English as well.This means we are getting the best of both worlds in education.The problem is will we survive the lifestyle here.

Egypt living is hard, rough and extremely full.So, staying indoors is the best and safest option.

We stayed home Ramaddan Eid because it was so full but this Eid we went out to the Pyramids and dream park.Planning our trip paid of and listening to the advice of taxi drivers as well.

So, we are living in Dokki,near the Nile River.Our flat is on the fifteenth floor.Alhumdulillah for this house.Allah knew what we can bear.
With a comfortable home it is making our stay easier.

Missing the clean living ,air,food and most of all my family and friends in Australia.May Allah except all our sacrifices for His sake Ameen.

Attaching some pics.Enjoy.Will send more soon

Forgot to mention the metro system here.Sending a pic of the sign outside the ladies only carriage.
Be prepared to travel like a sardine in a sardine can. Funny thing is I think its cool.Kids think I'm crazy.
