Haggard - Day 65 - Cairo
Looking in the mirror one morning a few days ago Lauren made a comment on her appearance. Looking in the mirror the night we arrived to Cairo I was immediately reminded of the comment, and how her descriptor- "haggard," seemed to fit me a bit better. Of course my first thought was to take a photo out our lastest hostel window. 
Ironically, our attitude anything but matches our appearance. Egypt is phenomenal, and in only our first three days we've met and spent time with so many really incredible people. The food is great, the price is right, and there's not a more historically touristy destination around. We can't help but participate even though we normally avoid a lot of the biggest tourist hot spots. Days and weeks of quick travel, long travel, soap shampoo, and unwashed clothes are no longer a concern. With so much to do here and so many people to see that's not even important, though a nice shower and real shampoo felt pretty good tonight. Now I have to get to bed since it's nearly 4 am and we have an early morning to venture out exploring Alexandria today.
