Expect the Inexplicable

When I go out here, I like to make sure I have a camera with me at all times, because you just never know what you're going to come across. In some ways, it's the odd sights and sounds of Egypt that give it its charm. Unfortunately, this notion doesn't quite apply when it comes to linguistic crimes:

  1. I cant even figure out what they were trying to say in the Abou Treka poster .

  2. Cringe! I'm also a grammar snob and have always found it very rewarding to bring my camera along with me wherever I go.

    As for the desert hero..oh my! I can see women across the Arabian desert falling for him (lol!)

  3. Desert Hero Camel to the rescue!! It'll only take him 123912 years to get there.

  4. hahahaha, good one Hanan

  5. Lol, you guys crack me up...

    Seriously though Londoneya, maybe we've been looking in all the wrong places...We need to get out to the desert haha
