Meal On The Run


This photo was taken before Ramadan. During Ramadan no one sells food at intersections but ordinarily this fleet of bread sellers fans out through the cars stuck in traffic selling an Egyptian version of pretzels.

That bread looks very good. I'd love to try some.
I heard the news about the rock slide in Cairo. I hope everyone you know is safe.

I don't know many people in Manshiet el Nasr. It's a terrible place to build and a terrible mess now. Not the first time there's been a landslide there. The hills are quite unstable.

How do they taste?

You know how some things taste sooooo good when you are visiting a foreign country? This bread is one of those things. But it would taste good at home too!

This is such an interesting blog to read! I am learning much here. I would certainly love to try that bread. :-)
