This is Khaled. He drove us all over town. We probably spent more time with him than anyone else, if you know anything about Cairo traffic then you know why.
Mohammed on the left. He's the reason I gained ten pounds in 4 weeks (sadly that is not an exaggeration).
Sayeed is next to my mom and Su-su is next to me.
I realize this is a lot of photos, but I have a feeling that over the next few months I'm going to re-visit this post and reminisce... and maybe cry a little while I fold laundry and do dishes. Sigh.
It's pretty darn cute when Ike says Su-Su.
Wael, my favorite of my dad's bodyguards (no offense to Omar, he's cool too).
Always in a suit and tie... and packing heat.
Su-su, oh how I miss her. She went shopping with me and her bargaining skills saved me hundreds of pounds. Thanks to her I didn't have to pay a "skin tax."
Nabil, my dad's driver.
My little brother, Chris. Love this guy so much!
His nephews adore him.
Even though shortly after this photo, Chris accidentally broke Booker's Kinder Surprise toy.
Then things got a little weird...
My judgement in Cairo may not have been the best. I blame it on my Egypt Goggles, the same things that made me completely disregard all car safety rules. Those darn goggles also made petting a lion at the zoo sound like a good idea.
Letting three-year-olds hold your gun is normal, it's fun, it's Egypt!
Seriously, what was I thinking? It's not loaded, but still... it's a GUN. Yikes.
I'm just glad he looks super awkward and uncomfortable.
