I'm really enjoying living here. The landlord is very nice, the location is amazing, and the apartment itself is very spacious. This is the first time I'm living completely alone. At first I thought it would very lonely but I'm really liking it. It feels liberating to use the bathroom with the door wide open.
I ponder this painting every morning.
Another great thing about this place is that I have an extra bed frame and mattress so it's very nice for visitors. If you don't believe me, just ask Chris Duffy and Mollie West (oh nines!) who are my very first visitors in Cairo (not including my mom). I visited Chris in Greece a little less than two weeks ago and now it's his turn. It's been so great having them here. I've loved showing them around my favorite spots (i.e. juice stands) and I've been really enjoying their company. They've taken lots of pictures so hopefully I'll steal some to show you our adventures. It's great to have friends from back home here--even if it means not being able to leave the bathroom door open for the week.
