Can you smell the sea breeze?

Confession: I am not a Cairene, I was neither born nor raised here. As a result, I can’t stand prolonged periods of time in Cairo not intermitted by trips to the open seas. I’m Alexandrian so I’m biased but at this point I don’t care which sea, as long as I get to see the water. Red sea (Sina) excursion sounds like heaven just about now. I’d settle for a weekend in Marsa Matrou7, hell I’ll drive!!!

The crystal blue water…. the cool refreshing breeze…. the colourful summer attires as Egyptians strip down to the minimal basics (why is it MI to find a decent swimsuit in this country, what all of a sudden we are bikini land!!!!!!???)… the beach volley tournaments and the racket games… the teens lying down tanning under the hot desert sun… the little kids building sand castles by the water front, the kites, the music, the salespeople.

I want it all.

I want my summer vacation and I want it right now!!! 

I want to dive into that clear blue water, breaking the tension of the surface, going deeper and deeper, leaving all the worries and thoughts behind. Embracing that state of zen. Ooh I can’t wait.
