What I don’t do anymore since living in Egypt (written with a wink)

• Call customer service when I have a complaint.
Just two words: Suicide mission.
• Tell a taxidriver I’m Dutch.
They all tell you long stories about this magical victorious match in 1990 where Egypt played soccer against The Netherlands in the World Cup. The score was 1-1.
• Go to a police station to report a crime.
Tried that once. Shame on me.
• Being at the airport 3 hours in advance.
What’s the use? Nobody is there to check you in.
• Follow traffic rules.
You will be called donkey or (son of a) dog.
• Eat (anything) before visiting family or friends.
You will need that empty stomach (the food is always delicious).
• Be on time for an appointment.
If I want to be alone, I can do that in my own house.
• Forget that there is always dessert.
Leave some room in your stomach! You will be force fed.
• Act silly around a policeman.
They have guns here, big ones. 
• Believe anyone who says “Bokra(tomorrow) In shaa Allah”.
They're lying and they know it.
• Wait patiently in line.
You can stay in line as much as you want, but you will be the last one to be helped.
• Try to download a movie.
Takes years. No, centuries.
• Return a plate empty.
Just don’t. Put something on it, doesn’t matter what it is.
• Wear red clothes.
I don’t really know what the deal is with that.
• Cycling 
Unfortunately there is no good infrastructure for that.

I really want to share this documentary, The Island of All Together, with you (available to watch till 24th of December). Description: Every summer many European tourists travel to the Greek island Lesbos for a sunny holiday. This year thousands of refugees crossed the sea from Turkey and arrived on the island as well, looking for a safe haven in the European Union. Filmmakers Philip Brink and Marieke van der Velden invited tourists and refugees to talk one another about life while sitting on a little bench overlooking the sea. The result is a short documentary with conversations of war, fleeing, home, work, love, but also cars and pets. It's an ode to humanism and shows what happens when we take time to sit down and talk with each other in stead of about each other. (23 min)
The video is available with Dutch, German, English, Greek and Arabic subtitles (click the CC button bottom right to choose the language you like)

What I’ve learned so far: ‪#‎Egypt‬
*They eat beans for breakfast
*The money doesn’t make sense (25 cent bills? :/)
*I know more people smoking hashies here than in the Netherlands
*It’s ok if you don’t open the door, you don’t have to stay quiet and pretend you’re not home
*You can listen to everybody’s personal calls, even from 3 blocks away
*They love to laugh
*When something happens in the street everybody is either against you or with you
*The louder you scream the more people are with you
*Honking is not only to warn for danger
*Want to cross the street, use a local as shield
*They don’t eat the weddingcake at the actual wedding
*Driving is gambling with your life
*Every car has a bump or a scratch
*They’re good in parking, to the millimeter
*When a guest, do not pay, they get offended
*They don’t do internet banking
*A guy shows up every month to collect the bill for gas/electricity/water

*Never ask why about anything happening around you
*Patience is key
*Everthing is always bokra in shaa Allah
*When you pay in a shop, they refuse 2 times and take the money the third time, don't walk away the first 2 times
* When they ask you 'aizz haga', do you want something, you are supposed to say no
* Microbus drivers are crazy
* Helmets don't exist
* Lanes on the road are just for show, so are seatbelts and traffic police
* When you order a Pepsi, you have to specify if you want Coke, Orange, 7up or Miranda

Millions of Syrian people have been forced from their homes by violence and war. All of us can help the UN Refugee Agency provide them and other refugees worldwide with the necessities to survive and rebuild.

I'm a work in progress, I'll make mistakes and stumble over my own two feet. I'll trust the wrong people and say the wrong things, but I'm learning my lessons today, lessons that I'll need for tomorrow. I might be young and impressionable but one day I wont be and I'll have this all figured out but for now I'll make my mistakes and tomorrow I'll call it experience and with time it will grow into wisdom.

And for the rest:

- I don’t speak Arabic so commenting on my posts in Arabic has no use.

- I post what I find interesting, that does not mean it is also my personal opinion.

- If you are rude, I don’t reply

- Smile!

No matter where life takes me, you´ll find me with a smile.
