Jeremy Goes to Alexandria
One of the first things Laura (my Alex traveling companion) noticed when we got to Alex was the big no-honking sign right outside the east train station. What suprised me is that it actually seemed to mean something: The corniche, 10 lanes of traffic that divide the city from the sea, is actually a pretty quiet place. Compared to Cairo, at least, where one cabby has all the tools he needs to wake the dead.
"Jeremy of Arabia" - an AUC student blogger who's been around for a while but I completely missed out on until now. There's a loveley picture as well - from Alex that is, not the portrait that is currently topping Jeremy's blog and is likely to scare off most visitors.
