Once again, I have to apologize for not posting on my blog for so long. This time I have a good reason. My computer has been in repair for several weeks, and it looks like I won't be able to use it until I go back the the states. So getting pictures online becomes more complicated. A lot has happened in the past month! At the very end of April, I went to Egypt for about 5 days. My friends and I spend most of our time in Cairo. We saw the Pyramids, which were slightly anti-climactic. Very cool, but definitely not the best part of the trip. I had a wonderful time with my friends Hannah and Rachel, and I hope you enjoy these pictures.

Me and Hannah...and one of the Pyramids

Hannah, Rachel, me, and the Sphinx

We spent a lot of time at Khan el Khalili Market. This is our friend Said and his glass shop. He had the most beautiful glass, and we had to get really creative with packing all our fragile purchases.

Entering the Khan el Khalili Market. I'm not in this picture...

They sold all kinds of beautiful crafts and antiques

Don't wake him up, Hannah!

Some women going into the amazing, huge library in Alexandria.

Us in the catacombs

I'm not sure why I decided to bend over like this...

Me, Rachel, and Hannah at El Fishawy, the best place to hang out and people watch in the entire world. Oh, and the Turkish coffee isn't half bad either.
