One More Reason I Love Living in Egypt

It’s not just about the Pyramids

No one loves Egypt because it’s an easy place to live — it’s not.

But every so often a day comes along that makes it all worth it.

Most days present one or more struggles unique to our ancient neck of the woods, or desert as it were.

Insanely congested traffic is a viable excuse for every instance of lateness or otherwise not showing up.

Power outages are common, which is a bummer if you live on the twelfth floor and have to drag your sweaty, tired hump up the stairs with a bunch of groceries.

The water gets shut off without warning or explanation.

It comes back on when it comes back on.

The 105-degree heat in the summertime adds a multidimensional layer of discomfort, which makes you wonder, how much worse can it get?

For every creature comfort gone dry, there’s an equally magnificent upside to living in the land of pharaohs.

Need antibiotics? No need to go to the doctor; simply call the pharmacy, share your symptoms, and they’ll deliver what you need in an hour.

Are you lost on the street? No problem, because everyone wants to help you find your way among the 20 million…
