Miserable in Egypt

Did you ever wonder about the mythical world of ‘The Mummy’?

Did you ever wish to be a Librarian caring for the relics of this world?

Did you ever hope If you could be a hero, saving everything?

Chances are that you definitely did and my dear, fellow human being, I am with you on that train along with thousands of other people. 

One of the biggest things on my bucket list was to ‘Visit the Pyramids’ with a doodle of them on the front page. You see, I am dedicated to this list.
So, I found a project to volunteer that soothe heart and my soul and will take me to Egypt. So I hopped on the plane and landed at the magical hour of 2 am. And guess what, just like the movie it all went downhill from there.

The accommodation was shit, the work was uninteresting and Egypt- of course not really what ‘The Mummy’ painted.

But I met the most wonderful people, ate food I have never even heard about and made friends for life. 

I lived like a local, amidst the locals.
I fell in love with the language. I learned things about myself that I never knew were there. I got lost without any worry of finding my way back.

And I did go to the pyramids which I am definitely pretty smug about.

So I was a bit miserable in the begnnning but I was glad I was miserable in Egypt.
