We had a lovely time eating and chatting while trash from the BBQ - styrofoam plates, aluminum foils, napkins and water bottles - blew down into the wadi we had just cleaned. The Egyptians didn't even seem to notice - I think they are so used to being inundated with garbage that they literally don't see it. American me was rabbiting around pouncing on flying pieces of garbage and hauling them over to the cardboard boxes serving as temporary trash receptacles...finally shamed a few Shoprite guys into following my lead. This culture has a long way to go in dealing with garbage.  Posted by Hello
