Worst hair-do ever!

Okay, I saw something tonight that I want to share with all of you. I saw the WORST hair-do I have ever seen. I've made a decision about my future and hair. I'm praying for a full head of white hair like Bob Barker when I get older. But, if that doesn't happen, I've decided to go bald as gracefully as possible. Just accept it and move on. But I saw a guy tonight with a different philosophy on hair loss. He had the cool little ring of hair. (you know, where everything's gone on top and there's just a little bit of hair left on the sides) Anyway, this guy had grown the ring out REALLY long. Part of it was pulled back in a pony-tail, and the rest was brushed forward to cover the dome. If it had been convincing, it would have been cool. Alas, not so convincing.

I just got back into town two nights ago. I was up in Cairo for a few days this last week. A friend invited me to his brother's wedding. So, I packed a little bag and took the bus up there. It was a nice time. I stayed with an Egyptian friend and slept on his roof. It was cooler on the roof than it was inside with the fan on. I should be used to it by now, but I still find it odd to be sweating outside at midnight. Kind of a strange feeling.

I'm here until the end of the week. On the 19th I'll be heading to the Netherlands for about two weeks of training. After that, I'll be heading back here. It'll be nice to get out of the country for a little while. When you're surrounded by the same thing all the time, it's easy to forget that anything else exists. So, it'll be cool to get out of the country for a bit and get some more perspective on life and culture here. I'm also looking forward to not being in 45 degree (115 for you Fahrenheit people) weather for a couple of weeks. Who knows, I might even have to wear a sweatshirt in the middle of summer! :)

Okay, that's all the news I can think of for the moment. I hope everyone's doing well! Peace . . .
