    ... me only the warmest hospitality, even though they're refugees. They're also thoroughly puzzled as to why I'm reading the Quran even though I'm not Muslim (I hate to tell them I'm reading the bible too). I've also taught their sons some Israeli Krav Maga, which seems a bit twisted. Also went to the Coptic part of cairo, which is my favorite place in cairo. No one hustled me and were quite friendly.

Over the next several decades, the postal service was again transferred ...

    ... and a crooked smile. I may have written a paragraph above mildly mocking the guy who tried to sell us a camel tour, but at least he's legit, with his own office location and a reputation good enough for the first-class hostel tour to consider him worthy (more on that in a bit).

    Cairo is 3-odd hours from Bahrain so time to take in a movie and some in flight service before Rebecca, from her typical window-seat position, nudges me and says..
