I almost forgot to mention:
While I was sitting and chatting with E (see previous post), I mentioned that I’d just recently visited Cairo, his hometown. He asked where I stayed, saying that I should’ve gotten in touch as he just happens to be part-owner of a hostel right in the heart of the city.
A hostel called Lialy.
Talk about a freakin small world!!! In case you don’t recall, I mentioned Lialy specifically in this post as being an almost unusually warm and friendly place to stay. E went on to mention his business partner by name, who I’d met and who spent quite some time trying to help me repair my broken underwater camera.
Seriously. Small world.
