... confused between what names were in this game, and what was in the last ones, it was very funny! After the third game it was dinner time, so we went downstairs, where I had the best felafels ever!

We had an early dinner tonight, but the staff again made a special birthday celebration for Jen Wood, with singing and music, ...
... and pot holes in the road I was afraid we might capsize. Dad seemed to really like the ride but I just kept seeing the dirty mattered hair, ribs hanging out and drivers whipping there horses, I thought it was disgusting and I now understand why the light horsemen killed their horses instead of leaving them in Egypt after the war, I cant imagine how they were treated back then.
