|Felucca, wine, and friends|
|Cairo at night from felucca|
The river was breezy and cool (relative to the 90+ degree days) and the quiet delightful. Anyone can rent a felucca without a reservation for about LE50 per hour, around $9 USD. You can bring as many friends as you wish, and we look forward to felucca picnics with everyone who comes to visit us here--that's a promise.

So life proceeds. We are probably getting fat from Kiki, the housekeeper's, superb Egyptian cooking, so we added Pilates in the morning to push-ups and lots of walking. An early "happy birthday" to friend TC (a frequent commenter on the blog) for the 29th. Looks like we may see Harris's sister Nancy and husband Tom next month, possibly my uncle Bill and aunt Rita in November, and we are counting on McCombies and Andrew in December. Everything we have learned tells us that though Egypt is going through a lot of change, things will work out well. We hope so. The Egyptian people are wonderful.
