Happy Easter!

As the Egyptian government has announced a bank holiday for this coming Sunday and Monday, Hurghada is again getting crowded. As Karim told me today "he never thought he'd see the day when Hurghada is more polluted than Cairo." Haha! Although to be fair, it's really just all the dust in the air from the endless construction.

All that aside, Hurghada will be crowded these next few days! I know I personally have a couple friends coming down this weekend, should be exciting.

To all my Egyptian readers, I wish you all a happy Shams el-Nessim Feast!

For everyone else, may you have a blessed Easter. Will be back in a few days with lots of stories to blog about, I am sure.

Remember that this is the time of year to be thankful for things that you have in your life, as Christians we know that Easter Sunday is representative of the sacrifice that Jesus made for our own salvation, and His resurrection to the Heavens. Take this time to reflect on how you are making sacrifices for those around you. Go out this weekend, and do one good deed for someone else. If one person were to do one good thing every day, wouldn't our world be a better place?

In the spirit of Easter, help your neighbour with their heavy groceries, give up your seat to the elderly couple on the train; just be thankful.

So from me to you, Happy Easter!
