We left “our” little village at 10.30 Wednesday morning, got a ride to the airport and now, about 17 hours later we’re settling down in our hotel room we’re staying in until our new house sit hosts pick us up late afternoon.
It’s been a good time with a layover in Istanbul, Turkey.
We had dinner at the airport in Istanbul, a surprisingly good meal and a great waiter who picked up on Wivan’s interest in drawing…
And, except for the mouse picture we also got some blank sheets and made a little Christmas card for our waiter, Umut.
We’ve been well taken care of from the moment we entered Cairo airport and are very comfortable in our luxurious room at the Dusit Thani hotel in New Cairo.

Oh, we almost forgot! On the plane from Toulouse to Istanbul we met Jeff, a new international friend who’s on his way home to the Phillipines over the holidays. When life is giving you good surprises – enjoy them!
