My new friend . . .

For those of you who may not be familiar with Egypt, let me enlighten you. We have mosquitos. Let me clarify that . . . we have LOTS of mosquitos! And the fact that I live in a not-so-nice part of town really doesn't help things much. The mosquitos in Egypt don't carry malaria or dengue-fever though, which is really nice!

Anyway, tonight I walked into my room and noticed a new roommate. There was a lizard just hanging out on the ceiling. After my initial shock, I got really excited. Anything that eats mosquitos is welcome in my bedroom. I decided to name him Edwin. It seemed like a good lizard name. I thought about Arthur or Max, but they just didn't seem to have the cultured, educated flair that Edwin does. I hope he sticks around for a few days, although forever would also work for me. Maybe he'll tell all of his friends about the abundant mosquito buffet in my flat.

  1. I'm glad to hear that you are making friends with the natives! ;)

    It's been nice to see you blogging more- I get updates on Wednesdays from your parents, but it's great to hear about Egyptian life directly. Keeping you in mind... Emma
