Location: Cairo, Egypt

MapWell I'm coming to the end of what might be my last week off in Egypt - as most of you know I'm moving on soon to south east asia, sometime in July I think. We're still waiting to hear on the final dates. I've got the 4 week Jordan loop coming up then my sister is coming to visit (yay) and then my friend is coming to visit (yay) and after that who knows?

Alternating between feeling really really excited and also absolutely terrified - pretty much like I felt a year ago! I was looking through my old Egypt snaps earlier and was feeling pretty sad but I know it's time to move on, you know me, never stay in a job I'm not satisfied with!

I hear Asia is very cool and I think I'll be able to wear normal clothes most of the time, bring on the vest tops! It's been a real eye opener living here and I have to say it's made me very appreciative of all we have back home in our western countries, and particularly how much more respect women get at home. Seriously girls, you think you have it bad, it's nothing compared to here - at least at home you can look at a man without him thinking it's an invitation for sex! Anyway, I digress..bad points aside, it's a brilliant country with so much history and culture, those of you that haven't visited yet must do so (although come and see me in Asia first).

I'll keep you all updated on my movements and I'm looking forward to having some new experiences and photos to put up on the site!
