Catching Up Big Time

I’m back in the US with a pretty stable internet connection, which means you will be seeing a lot of posts from my last weeks in Egypt (I know, I’ve been really bad with updates as I’ve been without internet on my computer for a while – check out my Instagram for more timely material). I’ll start with five outfits representing what I wore for the last days of Ramadan, with details posted below each picture. As I’ve noted in previous posts, Ramadan in Cairo is full of social activities and fun, and these last days were no different. As I spent the last part of my stay in Zamalek there were a lot of outings by the Nile, whether an after-iftar farewell party on a feluka on the river with some of the awesome start-up people there, or more calmer, good-quality dining on its banks. I also managed to get some really sha3by activities down, going to the famous El Brins in the populous district of Imbaba for an unforgettable meal (really, I never knew something as simple as rice could taste that good) as well as conducting some late night kebda (liver) and sogo2 (spicy oriental sausage) sandwich hunting close to Tahrir square. How I miss you already, ya Masr.

Picnic by the Sea

Yesterday was spent with my mom and sister – a quite welcome thing as we’re usually all pretty busy, even when I’m in town. As the weather was acceptable and we live 3 minutes walking from the sea, we figured we’d take some food out to a small park in the newly extended (and really beautiful) harbor area.

We spent some quality time in our hippie-ish ensembles enjoying a simple dinner of fattoush, baba ghannoug, and.. wait for it.. something really, really classy.. Turkey hot dogs, haha (haven’t had that in an eternity). The view, atmosphere, and fresh air merited a gold star in Oslo’s grade book for the day.

Turkish dresses with hijab

Some of you might remember those dresses with hijab that I posted some days back that I thought looked quite old style upper class Eastern European. Well they were Turkish, and here is more of the same, except it’s much less Eastern European looking (the 1st and the 5th is still looks somewhat Eastern European royality or noblewoman to me);

What do you think about these dresses?
