Back in Cairo

We are back to walking to work every morning. On the way we pass the same things, but it doesn't always look the same. The flamboyant trees are in bloom now, and this little tree is really outdoing itself.
The temperatures are forecast to be in the low 30s this week, which is actually pretty nice. So far the evenings are cool and pleasant.
We are back in Arabic lessons and trying to get words to stay in our memories. This used to be an easier task, but we slowly forge ahead. We're still at the stage where we can only be understood by our teacher and vice versa, but we are confident that one day we will get beyond this stage and bloom like this tree.
