Is this a picture a blog?

I know, I know I have been posting so many pictures lately. I have so much I want to write, but putting it off until I feel like spilling it.

So these are some pictures from Alexandria, Egypt from a few weeks ago when my friend was here visiting. Its a beautiful place on the Mediterranean sea, but damn it was HoT and freakin' HuMiD! Fall/winter is THE best time to go there.
