Christmas picnic


Christmas Day in Cairo was sunny and fairly warm. A light jacket wasn't out of place but the sunshine felt great. One of my neighbours in this rather equestrian oriented neighbourhood decided that a ride to one of the hills in the desert near us and a picnic would be a fun way to spend a Christmas afternoon. We rode out to a point where my neighbour's jeep brought some rugs, lunch for us and a snack for the horses. Hope that your Christmas is as nice as mine.

so interesting to see that you were able to sit in the open sun to picnic, i had this sort of mythical idea that in the desert you would be seeking shade from the heat! Happy Christmas!

At Christmas in the desert you are seeking sun and hoping that the wind isn't too strong. Notice everyone is wearing jackets. By nightfall, you would be looking for the closest fireplace.
