The Butcher of Degla

Filed under: Cairo — scotsabroad @ 12:46 pm

We were invited to the annual South American BBQ at Wadi Degla today. We got to see some impressive, specially commissioned, cooking racks, used to cook (splay) the Egyptian lamb and the Argentine piglet –  all 18 kilos smuggled (frozen) in to the country back in August – the perks of business class. Here is Sergio still standing but less than sober, following the marathon cooking session.  Needless to say I took some serious abuse being a vegetarian. The boys amused themselves with the other children climbing the ridges and setting fires.  A satisfactory amount of sand and dirt in the bath this evening after draining.



  1. happy days for you all – days to live in your memory

  2. Been a while since I visited the blog. Sorry! Loved all the posts. That meat looks delicious. How you can stay veggie is beyond me, Andy, especially with Argentinian pals.
