Amreekia Min Bab Al Sharayah

That was the name of my old blog. Translated, it means an American woman from the old, poor and rundown district of Bab Al Sharayah in Cairo. I was given this nickname because although I was born in the USA, my mentality is more ghetto Egyptian. I'm a curious mixture of east meets west, and dont care if you call me balady!

I'm going to slowly bring some of the old posts from Amreekia over here (see archives), basically to give new readers some background. I hope you'll enjoy the old and the new and join me on this fascinating expat journey!

Gotta Love EGYPT!!!

Just a few examples of why I love Egypt. Not everyone gets a kick out of these things like I do...but to me, local color is everything.

I know there is baraka in the day, but a whole extra hour's worth?

Sounds like a happenin' kind of place huh? NOT!

Except if you are a road sign.

Yoohoo...spell check anyone?

What can I even say about this one?


Egyptian ambulance...those less severely injured must stand.

Just wondering where the seats are???
