Moving Day in Egypt: Katameya Bound!

Today was moving day in Egypt.

Well, for us, at least.

We got up at about 5am to send Katie off at the airport. The poor girl had my luck – I had a feeling she would. She ended up getting super sick on the plane, so they bumped her up to first class. Then she missed her connecting flight by about 5 minutes in London, so she was delayed by about a day in getting home. She arrived safe and sound (and with her luggage, I might add). I’m starting to think that our family shouldn’t be let into airports haha.

Afterwards, we packed up all of our stuff – which is much easier here since we have been renting furnished apartments (or ‘flats’ as they call them here). We were quite the spectacle with all of our stuff out on the curb waiting for the minivan to move us.

As soon as our driver arrived, we loaded the van up – on the roof and inside – and my Mom said goodbye to her Bowab, who is kind of like the doorman and fix-it-all. Cutest man ever, will definitely miss his smiling face!

We made the  trip to Katameya, unloaded all of our stuff, and then went back for Sherri’s stuff. Somehow she had more stuff than we did combined (although, granted, she did have a lot of plants…). It was an adventure, but somehow we managed to get it all stuffed in the van minus one palm tree.

Momsters new place 

That night, we set up the Christmas lights and enjoyed the new balcony. We’re all a bit pooped, but ready to get to know a new area!
