We have a wadi...

In the year that we have spent here, we have loved Egypt. The people are friendly, love to smile and laugh, and keep a great sense of humor about the travails of life in what one author calls "the world's largest up-turned ashtray".

One of our favorite activities is mountain-biking in a canyon that is nearby to our house, named Wadi Digla. Correction, this is Brian's favorite activity and Genia lovingly tolerates it... There are more than 60 miles of trails with beautiful vistas and fantastic panoramas. It is amazing to believe that so close to the edge of all the chaos that is Cairo, there is this fantastically beautiful and peaceful retreat with gobs of fresh air. It makes things not just tolerable, but delightful...
