Egypt Race for the Cure

I thought I'd share some of the photos my dad took at the Egypt Race for the Cure. It took a lot of self restraint to not photoshop myself in. Man, I wish I was there. What a neat experience.

Pink pyramids.

Cheer up, Chris! It's not like your mom has cancer or something. Oh wait...

Best photo ever. An Egyptian lady with her race t-shirt pinned to her abaya. Waiting to start a race for the cure while her husband puffs away on a cigarette.

Whirling for the cure! These whirling dervishes had their own band of musicians following them.

Spinning and twirling across the finish line. Did I mention that I REALLY wish I had been there?

At the finish line. I like how the Sphinx is in between their heads.

Way to represent, Dad and Chris!

I love the
sphynx between their heads! It looks like it was done on purpose.
