Why I Moved Back to Egypt (part I)

I keep getting this question a lot. This is why I compiled the following list. I'll keep adding to it as time goes by. These are the reasons I could come up with today:

NUTRITIONAL REASON: After a night out, you can always find food after 5:00 am
MEDITATIVE REASON: 24 hour rush hour means you'll get stuck in traffic with constant honking and plenty of time to think.
LIBERTARIAN REASON: Absent or minimal traffic rules: if there is no physical barrier blocking your way, then the road is all yours.
PRACTICAL REASON: You always 'know someone' who knows someone who can get things done regarding some government paperwork.
AROMA-THERAPEUTIC REASON: Everyone wears cologne and sometimes stink at the same time
HEALTH REASON: You can smoke virtually anywhere: at the mall, inside buildings, inside offices, inside an elevator (yes I saw it happen), inside a car, inside an airport, you name it…
ENTERTAINMENT REASON: There is always something happening: be it explosions, weddings, funerals, birthdays, anniversaries, demonstrations, police beatings, more demonstrations, elections, election-related violence, car accidents, train accidents,... the list goes on.

you forgot to mention mutant desert dogs attacking the suburbs (real story in case you missed it).

or raids on satanics, or arresting the queens in queens boat.

or fictional mass murderers that every second woman has personally met

embrace mon, embrace

I've got a few too:


SOLAR REASON: Sun Sun Sun, until you get sick of it, but it's still better than gloom and fog.

MENTAL HEALTH REASON: People here at least have an excuse to be totally stupid.

Dear M,

This H from NL (I learnt about ur blog from ur body S in Cai).
I would like to add some reasons:
1) SHOPPING PARADISE: Whenever you need something, you can easily find some shops are open any time of the day.
2) HOME DELIVERY: You can order anything by phone (grocery, medicine, food and liquor), also endless services like ironing, dry cleaning, etc.
3) TIME WORTH NOTHING: You don’t have to apologise for being late.
4) LONG DAYS: In Egypt the day is still 24 hours (sometimes even more), unlike in America, Europe and developed countries!
5) CHEAP FUEL: You can’t find it cheaper that that except in Saudi Arabic.
