Day 5: I went to beautiful Alexandria and saw my second cousin who I hadn't seen in such a long while!
Day 6: Woke up to a beautiful, beautiful view. The Mediterranean. And I went shopping- I spent so much money but then it's okay, I guess...
Day 7: I spent time with my dad. Which I haven't done in so long as well!
Day 8: Was the sweetest girl's birthday, Mae, you're beautiful and you are blessed with people who love you. You shine!
Day 9: I emailed one of my very best friends from school who I very rarely see, since I have changed my number and I heard he was here in Cairo...he called me!! I hung up and jumped around the room and was overwhelmed with happiness honestly. I had a heart-to-heart with my best friend for the first time in a relatively long time and I just feel so relieved and like a huge load (and barrier) has been lifted.
It's day 10 and I am stuck at work until 7...tomorrow is Ramadan; a whole month of fasting until sunset, no morning coffees and even more conjested traffic. But, it's so much fun!! It's the month of huge gatherings, rooftops with friends, and lots of good food. I am actually getting quite excited (apart from the fact that on Thursday, I am going to the dentist at 3 and will have to do without pain killers until 8ish..that would be my 3rd visit...root canal, I know..)
Something is wrong with my computer/internet connection..it won't upload any photos..and the post looks odd. OH, I almost forgot to mention that one of my two gorgeous bosses' booksigning was yesterday! Go check her blog out!
Now you can see why I love my job! (apart from the boss ladies and a senior researcher, we are a team of 87ers!! Of which I am probably the only one who hasn't turned 23 yet..)
