Greetings from Cairo!

Greetings from Cairo!! The flight went well, although, honestly Alitalia stewards were not very civil towards Americans. We will definitely not fly Alitalia again.

Our flight from Milan to Cairo was beautiful and the stewards were very nice. Maybe they were glad we weren't coming directly from the US, who knows.

In any event, we're quickly adjusting to the climate here in Egypt -- we arrived in 90 degree heat.

Mira's in school already here at Futures Language school, she seems to like it -- there are 7 other Americans in her class -- one boy arrived from Chicago just 2 weeks ago. So it's good to see that we're not the only ones.

I have to go -- Mira's antsy and we need to find shawarma for Hassan.

I will write when I get a chance. Maybe in the next few days -- our pc is still being shipped.

Ma3salaama and love to all,

I'm happy to know you made it safe and sound. I've checking your blog daily to hear from you. I'll remember not to fly that airline. I was planning on trying it on my next trip to Egypt. Too bad Malaysian Airline (my favorite airline) does not fly there.

I look forward to hearing from you again soon.
