Making a Living in Egypt


This is part of what I do to make ends meet. True, most of my clients are in slightly less extraordinary physical condition, but I run a farm and riding business that specialises in sane, safe horses who can make a private dream come true, and it is always amazing to me how many people have dreams about Egypt. I take housewives who have just moved here and are trying to find their feet in the city on quiet rides in the villages so that they can see how the people live outside of the city. I help photographers who want some stunning shots of people, horses and pyramids. I guide treks through the desert to show visitors the backs of pyramids and other antiquities that aren't accessible by buses or cars.

Mostly I try to pass on the wonder, the laughter, and the joy of living that is this marvelous country of Egypt.

But these three one surely are motivating you :)

These guys were really funny. Only a couple of them were comfortable with horses and the grooms who were helping me out really had no idea what to think of someone riding half naked.

Tough job, but someone has to do it.

Having just discovered your blog, I will be reading all the old posts slowly, but surely. First, though, I headed for the oldest posts to discover why you decided to do this blog. This particular post is so very expressive of your love for Egypt. Thank you.
