"Thanks and thanks again to Him who offers to the man whom the sorrows of life have assaulted and left naked–offers to him the fig leaf of the Word with which he can cover his wretchedness." -Søren Kierkegaard

Egyptian Layover

Posted in Travel, Videos by matt on Wednesday, October 7, 2009

When planning our trip to Iraq we intentionally took a flight through Egypt Air because, not only was it one of the cheapest options, but it meant a 10 hour layover in Cairo. And that, my friends, meant a mad dash to the pyramids. Leaving the airport during a layover is always risky regardless of the amount of downtime you have, but in this case it ended up being well worth it.

Cayla has already uploaded a few pictures from our layover here, so I’ll just send you there instead of uploading them all over again. Instead, I’ve uploaded a video clip we shot with the Flip MinoHD that my parents got Cayla for her birthday.

    Great. Not-so-great. They had a baby? Is there subconscious message here somewhere? Wooohoo!

      Oh man I sure hope not. We’re not even kinda ready for that yet, though I know you’d like it.
