Warm Sunny Cairo Friday

(The pic above shows you the location of Dahab in regards to Cairo, a six hour drive through the Sinai, its amazing!)

Today was a warm, very sunny Friday in Cairo. What's new huh? Around noon I  listened to the loud speakers broadcast the Friday khutba. The khutba is a sermon given at  Friday prayers in the mosques. Here where we live we have only 6 mosques in this compound as opposed to the thousands in "Cairo". So when your in the city you hear so many loudspeakers simultaneously it gets crazy. Here on the other hand, less broadcasts, more relaxed and very calming actually.

How am I? I am good. Feeling fine, no different really, its 4 days past my 5 day transfer. The time is passing rather fast believe it or not. We leave for Dahab Sunday and I know it fly by while we are there too. I am anxious and hope next Sunday brings us some good news.

Some cramping today, good? Bad? Just don't know what to think. But I remain positive and optimistic that this time is our time.

I'll tease you all with some Red Sea treats in a few days. Peace & love... Wishy xoxo


  1. I had menstrual cramps right before I tested, I swore my period was coming so I decided I'd just test so I wouldn't have to make the long drive to get my betas tested. Wouldn't you know, it was positive!

    Have a fun trip, soooo glad the days are flying by and you've got something to look forward to to take your mind off of things. :)

  2. Thanks for the map! Definitely gives me a point of reference while reading your posts now. I'm so clueless about your part of the world!

    Those cramps are the little one that will eventually fill those cute empty shoes in your header pic! So excited for you! :)

  3. Thanks for the map - I'm not great with my Egyptian geography. :)

    Hope you have a great trip! Soak up some sun for those of us looking at snow...

  4. Have a wonderful time!!

  5. I'm thinking of you so much, can't wait to hear about your trip. love, fran

  6. Hoping the cramps are a good sign!! I'm glad you went and I'm glad you're finding some relaxation. FX!!

  7. Some cramps were a good sign for me :)
    Hoping for the best!

  8. Glad to hear you're feeling calm...keep up the fun & relaxation:) Can't wait to hear all about it!

  9. Sounds like a great way to spend some of your wait-until-beta! And I think the cacophony of multiple services being read over loudspeaker would be crazy-making! I can understand why the relief of hearing just one would be pleasant and soothing...
