Brief.

Lo siento for the slowness of updating of late. 'Tis the season for the midterms and the major one of this week was generally considered no less than a massacre.

That said, if anyone still wants to send me postcards or anything, my (much belated) mailing address is:

(Student Name)
AUC Student Residence
16 Mohamed Thakeb Street
(next to Meraashly Church)
Zamalek
Cairo, Arab Republic of Egypt.

This one has been tested out a few times already. Letters and cards not including "next to Meraashly Church" have not arrived, those that have included it did arrive. Please include it.

One last thing before a whirlwind tour of Petra--

Monica Sez:
"List of things in Cairo that must be imported to the U.S. by June in order for me to even CONSIDER coming home: 1) 20 cent ta'amiyya (for TWO, mind you), 2) Khan el-Khalili, 3) Taxis which lack meters but play "It's A Small World" and "My Heart Will Go On" when their drivers brake, 4) Koshari, 5) Freshly-squeezed mango juice whenever you want it, 6) Free delivery of everything and anything at any time, 7) The Friday afternoon call to prayer, 8) The men whose job is to stand at the side of the road and push the cars out of the way (and more than likely to a point where they're bumper-to-bumper) whenever someone wants to parallel park, 9) Egyptians, 10) Men comfortable enough with themselves to wear ridiculously tight jeans."

Amen.

Though the url got chopped off by the blogger commenter, so you might have to paste it back in in bits. :(

I appreciate the bloggy love. Oh, and in rereading it, I realized I forgot the bit about the gargantuan shiny belt buckles/neon signs pointing to specific places. Oops.
