Dear Grand Flying Carpet Magician (AKA Omar the magnificent)….
We are at home and all settled. It took a few days, but we are back on sleep schedule etc. All the many items we got in Egypt came through very, very well – not one piece was broken nor chipped. We have some very beautiful bowls, plates, other ceramics, and textiles to remind us of our wonderful second trip to Egypt and amazing Petra.
If you go to the international Newsweek of March 1, 2010, in the article beginning on page 51 (“Dancing the Trip Away”), then turn to page 52, middle column and right column, you will see what I read while in Cairo -- what a delightful surprise:
For those eager to learn the ancient art of belly dancing, there are a number of options… And in Morocco, TravelinStyle.com offers a nine-day belly-dancing tour, where guests stay at the plush Sofitel Essaouira Medina & Spa and take daily two-hour lessons as well as sightseeing excursions in Marrakech ($5,86) travelinstyle.com.
You are known world-wide – of course !!!
I know I have the belly for the dance lessons but not the flexibility to do the moves.
Hope all is well for/with you and yours.
Your very appreciative traveler…
