We arrive in dry, desert Egypt, and what is the first thing that happens? There is a storm, a downpouring of more rain than Cairo has probably seen in ages. Flooded streets, accidents (Egyptians don't know how to drive in the rain, for obvious reasons), people who don't own an umbrella all ducking for cover. We went into the city (from out in the suburbs, where we are staying with a friend, Lee), and had a heck of a time getting back out of it, what with all the delays and uproar.
Welcome to Egypt!
