Cairo: day 37

The best things about Cairo so far: An abridged and subjective list, pt II

1. Nightlife reporting
2. Palm trees with their trunks painted white
3. “Nature”-scented hand soap
4. Sam’s ancient washing machine (looks like this but yellow and teal and smacked around a bit. When you want to use it, you drag it from the kitchen to bathroom and plug it in. Entire washing process takes about 10 minutes)
5. Being told my name, in Arabic, means “little sheep’s butt” (roughly)
6. Pine cone light fixtures in my sublet
7. Curfew (RIP Jun 15)
8. Exquisite juice boxes
9. Decoratively-lit fruit stand street
10. $3 tailoring
