When I was in Hurghada I ordered a printer from Cairo. it didn't arrive when it should.
I called the company who said ":Sorry the driver was in a crash, and he died. Your printer's in his van, we'll get it to you as soon as possible"
I rolled my eyes, like one does, after a few years in Egypt, and said "Yeah, yeah...I need it as soon as possible"
A week later, the printer arrived.. the box was actually covered in dried blood!!
Living in Egypt makes you so cynical.....you never ever believe the truth.
This made me feel really bad!!!
