Back to Egypt again last week; ending up in Damanhour where I first worked overseas 26 years ago. At long last they have paved the road to the mill so it’s not such a bone-jarring journey.
We stayed in Cairo and then Alexandria but our days were too long to get out and explore a few old haunts.
On the Friday we arrived I did get the chance to wander around the hotel gardens and here’s a good pic of a huge palm tree plus one that I’m not sure about.
We had an entertaining flight home thanks to the ash cloud but we were lucky to be able to get back the same day we left, unlike a large number of fellow passengers.
It was good to get home; it felt a lot longer than the four days we were gone for.
