We have escaped our retirement home! We are now in Alexandria after spending 4 days couped up in Agami. The villa was great but we all internally aged 60 years. We were notified by Hind, our personal cook, when breakfast and dinner were ready. We spent most afternoons either sleeping or reading, if we were lucky we were allowed outside for a walk and every night after dinner we played Risk. (Mike and I tied for first overall) Agami was pretty much the complete opposite of Cairo. The streets were empty. Half the shops were closed (since it’s a beach town for Egyptians and we were there in the off season) It was a nice vacation from the hussle and bussle of downtown Cairo but tomorrow we are taking the train back. There are a few more things we’d like to do in Cairo before we all depart on Friday.
