Weekend Travel

Last weekend i went to Cairo.

I cant seem to get enough of this city.

Since I go a lot i don't do the touristy thing anymore.

so i have no pictures for u of pyramids or mummies.


But i did eat yummy egyptian food at abu elseed.
I love that resturant!




I went to see a chick flick


went to get my nails done at the nail spa

lovin the color

went to diwan my favorite bookstore in egypt

got me a few books

Hung out at my fav. cafe


Had lots of smoothies!


Had breakfast at the marriott. A must for me
whenever im in cairo!



Whats cairo without its traffic!

or its ancient black n white cabs.
some of them as old as the pyramids :P


Tourism police


Shopped at the Beymen


I heart Naeem Khan

Got me these sexy babies
(and i wonder why im always broke!)

Hung out with e3laiwee
my fav kid in the world :**


Went to Lai Thai at the 4 seasons

YUM!



Although last time i said i would never fly Egypt air again.. i did, this time it wasn't bad, although the food still majorly sucked .

Looks like you had a great trip :) I remember going to Egypt when I was significantly younger, and all i could remember was that I passed out at the pyramids LOL. Surprisingly, i thought it was a good memory :)

Hope you had fun, and welcome back :)

I'm going to Egypt after one week :) You made me get really excited!
