Hi,
Don't know how, but came across this thread. Seems strange to be posting on the Egyptian forum.:p
We've "met" on the Spanish forum, smth about your daughter and the electricity bill i think?? Did she get it sorted out??
Just wanted to say, I can't imagine living in Cairo, it must be very different to Spain. But I'd love to go over and soak up some history one day.
Love reading, having found the forum to be a positive experience, I've been looking into the possibilty of online reading groups, but haven't found anything that really convinces me. Do you know anything about this?
Pesky Wesky in Spain:)

Ola Pesky or Ahlan wslan fil Misr

The electric bill is being sorted, they are sending her new copies of all her bills, she was a QS in a former life so she will be spot on when she sorts them out lol
I read about 3 books a week, although for some reason I have just slowed down in the last couple of months, we could always ask the big boss if we could do a separate room for a book club, trouble is it has to be a book that I can get hold off lol
Nice to see you here, call again for some chai

Hello. I just came to cairo two weeks ago. I am 22, male, Chinese and lived in California for 10 years. Now i am working in Maadi. It feels so different here, have to adapt to the culture and surrounding. Hope to find some fun places here and meet some new friends. :D

GOOD ONE!! and totally understood! :)

I'm from Poland, living and working-hopefully better soon- in Sharm el Sheikh.
No children yet, and no habibi-drama :)
Just trying to change something in my life :) following Mark Twain's quote:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

I love the Agouza. When I lived in CAiro before I was living in an apartment in the agouza just behind the circus. So alive there. But I have now grown to love October city . So what has pulled you into life in Cairo?

Hello,

I am half Egyptian, half American, born and raised in the US and currently living in Washington,DC. As my wife, who is full Egyptian but also born and raised in the US, recently had a baby we would like to move to Egypt for a while so our child can learn Arabic, spend time with family and be accustomed with the country. We speak Fluent conversational Arabic but its "broken" as they say and we would also welcome the opportunity to improve our Arabic. We go to Egypt every couple years or so and enjoy the country so much-- especially the amount of outdoor activites available such as diving, hiking, and spending time in the Oasis'. We would love to come and join groups of people who want to futher an outdoorsy culture outside of the expensive clubs (nady).

I work in IT management as the head of IT of a global firm- but sadly they do not have a presence in Egypt. I have posted in the Egypt jobs section for some advice on finding a expat job in Egypt.

Looking forward to participating on these forums and to hopefully join you all in Egypt!

Best,
Hussein

PS- I am trying very hard not to take offense to all the references of "NO EGYPTIAN MEN" I do understand where this sentiment is coming from, but still find it a bit offensive and dismissive.
