WOW! We've experienced so much in just the first week of our "Round the World" trip! Everyday we have been "flat out" and this is the first chance I've had time to sit down and write. When I was a kid I read a magical book called "Scheherazade and the 1001 Arabian Nights" - this is the book that contains a collection of Arabian folk tales including "Aladdin's Lamp", "Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves" and "Sinbad".

of these conflicting cultures coming together within one company.

Egypt up next on my agenda. Tally
