Journal Entry:
Besides staying up early talking I just couldn't sleep last night. It was getting late by the time I dragged myself out of bed. I took Stacy to the Kushari place Amy and I had discovered then spent the day running errands. Went to the Hilton to use the ATM. Checked my email to see if there was any news about my H/PC - there was, my old P/PC ("Pocket PC") should be at the Cairo FedEx office tomorrow. Stacy and I went for a short walk on the Nile and then went on an unsuccessful quest for the KLM office so Stacy could confirm her flight out. After our failure we decided we deserved beers. Strangely enough we went to an Egyptian restaurant for the beers, but ended up going to Pizza Hut for dinner (very disappointing). The plan had been to get to bed early, but we ended up staying up talking again.
