Journey to the Fatherland Part 1

 So as many of you know, my dad has lived out in Cairo for 18 months. This meant that over Easter with all the days off work it was an obvious time to come out and visit. Sadly the day after I arrived my beau came down with the Pharaohs Curse which meant two obligatory days in the villa watching the entire star wars box set……. So not entirely wasted!

On the first disease free day we had a pretty chilled time then met my dad in his office, which is essentially a small house, it has a big American kitchen and a butler and everything! We had a glass of Limone, which is basically Egyption lemonade, then headed in to town.

We went to this cute little restaurant called Asia, it’s on a riverboat called the Blue Nile which is moored on the outskirts of Zamylek. The food was incredible, sweet and sour chicken, teriyaki chicken, sweet chili calamari. The most exciting bit was the view though, these long colourful boats cruise down the nile covered from tip to tail in fairy lights of all colours. Aren't they pretty?!

To finish the evening we headed to the Cairo Opera House to see Cairo Ballet perform swan lake. The principle really was lovely and the costumes were divine.

Either way I have a very exciting few days ahead so I’ll make sure to keep you updated!
