I was supposed to get kicked out of my apt but owner of the apt gave me some time to get another place. I will have you know that getting a place in Masr is like pulling teath. It is a complete run around. One minit this guy has an apt for rent, the next minit he doesn’t.
The crazy thing is, I find out that owner doesn’t need me to leave after I made an agreeent to move to ‘his’ other place(that costs more). Now I am being asked if I can find someone to move into this place now.
No, problem. I needed more space anyway, but it was really really stressful going around looking for places and having to move to a place that is more expensive than the one you were already in just to find out that you don’t have to leave after all. But now the deal is done and all is said. Allahu Musta’an.
I am just worried about how long it will take to get good internet set up when I do move. This is Egypt, it takes so long to get anything done.
I guess I can look at it this way, this new place is much bigger and next to some schools for the kids. Heh, schools. You don’t even want to know the prices for schools when a kid is not fluent in arabic. The English speaking schools are $$$$!
Oh yeah, and in all of this I am expecting my wife to have the baby(before the move). The 3rd child of our little pack…(don’t talk to me about how much it is for a clean hospital around here, but we got that handled a while ago wal humdulillah)
