Spring is nigh; so much so that the sun is already starting to cause a lot sweltering, huffing and puffing.  Yet while Disney would like to make you think that spring is about twittering birds and budding flowers, in Egypt things are different. You wouldn’t expect anything less, would you? Here, you can be treated to sandstorms and swirling whirlpools of garbage. That is not to mention cats in heat and weather that is more unstable than the uneven pavement and hole-filled streets. If you think it is hot enough to wear a t-shirt, you might want to reconsider. Yet, even when you have a jacket on, spring will eventually get to you.
