My Weekend in Cairo

My trip to Cairo was interesting to say the least. 

Our flight was supposed to leave on Wednesday at 2 PM,  it was delayed for an hour and a half.  I started to freak out at first when it was delayed because I didn’t really know if I will have enough time to get ready for the wedding.  By the time we arrived, got our luggage and made it to the hotel all I wanted to do was PASS OUT, I have been up since 6 AM oo it was all rush rush rush.  I go to my mom and she tells me that I need to shower and go get my hair and make up done ASAP.  I showered like I was “Flash” and ran down to get my hair done. 

I was very cranky and demanding, but the guy did my hair pretty nicely.  I didn’t go over the top, I got a small chignon with straight hair and some volume.  Then I went and got my make up done.  I’m VERY picky when it comes to make up, I don’t like too much, too much foundation will make me very angry, I dont like the change my skin tone, I don’t like to look “different”.  I told the make up lady my rules, and prayed to God that it turns out well because I don’t have time. 

Thank GOD I liked what she did, I actually really loved what she did.  I went changed quickly and my mom was calling me every 3 minutes telling me to come down because the hall was filling up.  I finally made it down stairs and I loved the place it was done so so so nicely!

An hour or so after I came done, the groom enters, then a couple of minutes later the Bride enters and the Zaffa started.  They’re both extremly good looking.  It was the cutest Zaffa ever!! Then they had their first slow dance, I had the song stuck in my head the next two days and now I can’t remember it. 
Dinner was served, people mingled and talked for a couple of hours.

At around 1:30 AM Amr Diab started playing.  That was amazing!  I’m not a huge fan of Amr Diab himself but I really like his songs.  It was SOOO much fun,  my feet were killing me by the time he finished playing.  He only stayed about an hour and a half.  Then a DJ started.  I didn’t leave the wedding until around 5:30 AM, and by the time I fell asleep I had been awake for 24 hours!!

The next morning I was awakened by my mothers 2 friends (I was with them in the room).  They woke up at 10:30, I wanted to cry, but I got out of bed. showered and changed, then went down to breakfast.  I had foul iskandarany for breakfast! ;p  After we were done they went down and sat in the lobby and I went and checked out the mall thats connected to the hotel.  Its more of a department store actually.  I FOUND a bag that I want, its RED from Miu Miu.  I didn’t buy it, but I know I want it :p 

My mother wanted to show her 2 friends around Cairo so we got into the car and drove around.  It was SO za7ma oo ana daykha oo i got the worst headache ever, after 3 hours of being in the car (we just left for a couple of minutes to walk around Al-Azhar Gardens) we went back to pick up another one of my mothers friends and we headed to “Abo il Seed” for lunch/dinner. 

By the time we got back to the hotel it was around 7 or 8 at night and I was feeling exahusted.  We walked down the street to the hotel that was next to us, which also had a mall (ya3ni sij ;p), they went to see a store and i was trying as hard as possible to stay awake.  We finally get back to the hotel and we were standing in the lobby, they were discussing what they wanted to do next.  My mother kept on telling me my face is yellow and pale and i kept on telling her i’m fine.  They stayed about 15 minutes discussing what they wanted to do next, and I was getting more tired by the minute.  Finally my legs gave out from under me oo i fainted LOL.   I think that was a final call for me to go to bed.

I slept about 12 hours, the next morning I felt more refreshed, went had breakfast then headed to Khan il Khaleeli with one of my mothers friends.  We stayed there for about 5 hours.  Bought a bunch of stuff, took some random pictures with my phone camera.  Sat in the “Alfeshawy” cafe and got hit on by a bunch of sellers.
One guy asked me where I was from so I said the USA he believed me for a while until I told him I was from Kuwait then he said “Enty mush min amairka wala min il kuwait entyy min il 2amaaar” LOOOOOL 3ayaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar!

Went back to the hotel found the rest in the lobby, and decided to go have dinner, went to “Farahat” to have 7amaam.  But before we left we saw Omar Al-Sharif in the lobby so I took a picture with him.  After dinner we had some stuff to finish up and then headed home and I fell asleep :p

Then I came back to kuwait bil salama 😉
