now I am in Egypt

Well, after a whole day-and-a-half in my lovely homeland (although is has to be wondered how much London really counts …), here I am in another land, another continent, etcetc.  And it’s REALLY nice!

Maybe this is true and maybe it isn’t, but in a lot of ways I feel FAR more comfortable here than I was in the States – I love walking around at night (evenings are seriously GORGEOUS here), ignoring the taxi-vans beeping at me, and generally acting as if I’m not a tourist.  Which I’m not.

On thursday, I got to go to my SIXTH wedding in FOUR months (they’ve been in 4 different countries too), which was also my first time to go to an Orthodox church – a very good experience, by the way; I especially liked the old priest guy.

I don’t have many (/any) responsibilities here, so am free to be with friends, wander about, or do writing (I’m doing prep and/or planning for about 4 novels, 3 short short stories, and lots of ideas for childrens tv programmes – how much fun?!!!).  It’s a good lifestyle for me.

Speak soon …
