For the fist time in 2 years the school held it’s annual carnival. Each member of staff had a job at a specific outlet, the maths department had the privilege of running the pony and camel ride. Big smiles all round. Rides were purchased using the ticket based system that is so common here in Egypt. You take your money buy tickets and then exchange these tickets for rides, food, the hena lady . . . We all did 1 hour of taking tickets from 12 until 5pm and could leave after our shift was over, Maddy and I left about 2pm after getting hena tattoos on our legs. We called a taxi that turned up at 2:50pm and were home within 30 mins where Geoff, who had stayed at home, made us fried egg sandwiches for lunch.
