I have friends from Canada staying with me right now. We are all complaining of the cold weather and they keep laughing at us...with good reason I suppose. But it has been colder here than I ever remember in Cairo. For about four mornings in a row, there has been frost on the grass early in morning and my ordinarily green lawn is a dull beige where the grass shoots have died from the frost. We went out riding in the area yesterday and one of my friends took this photo of some of the village children as we rode by. In the chilly weather, the children have layered on their clothing with pretty colourful results....yet they still wear their sandals.
