O/T - Milad Majid!
« on: December 22, 2007, 04:44:39 PM »
or for you non-Arabic speakers...


because Marie and I are about to go get on a plane for Egypt and we'll be in Cairo on Christmas Eve. Since I won't be here I just wanted to wish all my bus nut friends and early Merry Christmas and we'll talk again after our return.

I'll take pictures of the Egyptian buses!

Hmm, I thought it was more like:

"I'D Miilad Said ous Sana Saida"

Nonetheless, We know the sentiment and wish you and yours a safe trip, fresh winds and fair skies.

Thanks for being a part of our little group.

Well, whadya know! They have broadband at the hotel in Cairo! So Merry Christmas. It's 1:30 in the afternoon here on Christmas day. Been out doing a little site seeing this morning. We were surprised to find Christmas decorations everywhere and people telling us Merry Christmas. Of course that is just for the tourists since this is a Muslim country, but we still like it.

No pictures of buses yet but we did ride from the airport on a Setra S411. Hopefully I can take some pictures of different buses later. The traffic is nuts here! I am glad I ain't driving! They seem to blow the horns around here instead of using blinkers. As a matter of fact, they seem to blow the horn instead of everything else!

Anyway, I hope Santa is good to everyone tonight.. And remember the real reason for the season. And Dallas, 'I'D Miilad Said ous Sana Saida' means Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Milad Majid just means Merry Christmas. But I hope you all have a Happy New Year as well.  :)

Thanks, Dale and a Very Merry Christmas along with a Super Happy New Year, no matter what language it's in!

Have a great vacation and a safe trip home. We'll be expecting to see that old Eagle out on the road soon after you get back because by then you'll be well rested and ready to work on it.
