Yer Goose is Cooked Son

Filed under: Cairo,visits — scotsabroad @ 4:36 pm

We took Gordon to the Egyptian Museum today. Back in May I found this statue in the Roman Room and thought it was fantastic. I dutifully checked my camera in at the front gate today but I got to use Gordon’s who had inadvertently concealed his in his trousers. Ideal smuggling conditions as the museum was full of tourists.  The body language is great – no facial expressions required to read in to the scenario.  Shona adds: once we arrived back at New Cairo, Gordon and the boys had a mammoth wrestling session whilst she cooked roast chicken, potatoes and stuffing. Not cooked goose – but just as yummy.

We took Gordon to the gate of Bab Zweila and he climbed to the top of the iron staircase. The views were clear across the city. On his last night we hired a feluca and watched the sun go down. Haste ye back Gordon.
