I have arrived safely in Egypt.
It wasn't easy though. When I arrived at the airport for my flight, the airline said I was supposed
to be on the flight.
My travel agent made a serious error!! As they told me this, I could feel the
tears start to roll down my face....5-6 months of planning down the drain
because my travel agent screwed up. So, I was placed on standby and sent on my
way. I reminded myself of a conversation I had with Chris the previous day
about "The Secret" and the power of positive thinking. It worked....I
envisioned myself on the flight to London, and as a reward for my hour of
stress, I was placed in business class.....wine, great dinner, reclining
sleeper seat, video game/movie/TV screen on the seat in front of me.... what a
great reward!! :-)
Needless to say, I am here in Egypt
and traveling with 12 new friends. Highlights of the week include: the Great
Pyramids at Giza, the Sphinx, Abu Simbel (the largest temple in Egypt), the
amazingly flavorful food, the hecticness of Cairo/Giza (population 20 million),
and I am excited to be departing on a felucca in a few minutes to go sail up
the Nile for 2 days of relaxation. Anyway, I just wanted to let all of you know
I arrived safely and my African Adventure is off to a great start. Many more great
stories to come.....
