    As many of you might know..I am in Egypt a lot with hubby's business and family. The last several years have seen much turmoil in Egypt. After the initial revolution, in which we had the tanks right in front of our tour business door, business was down to nothing...even for the hajj. The depth of corruption had no bottom even for us.

    by , 03-31-2012 at 02:29 PM (Kisses from Kairo)
    Iím not Egyptian and I donít pretend to be, but Iíd be lying if I said I havenít picked up a few Egyptian habits. Being Egyptian is contagious. :) Particularly when you live here for a while and speak the language pretty fluently. Thatís all quite normal, I guess. But itís interesting in light of the fact that I grew up in a country where itís common for foreigners to cling onto their native cultures and resist assimilation.
