We live in the country of Egypt. Egypt is apart of the continent of Africa.
Our school is in a city called Sheikh Zayed, but many of us live in different parts of Cairo. When there is no traffic it takes us 30 minutes to drive from school to our homes in Cairo. However, usually it takes us 1-2 hours to drive home after school because there are so many cars on the road. Cairo is where the Giza pyramids and the Spinx are located.
Egypt has 2 seasons (winter and summer).
Winter is from November to April. The temperature is around 60 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and 40 degrees Fahrenheit at night. For the first time in over 100 years, we got snow this year.
Summer is from May to October. It gets to be over 100 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer.
Kosheri: noodles, tomato sauce, chickpeas and fried onions.
Vine Leaves: grape leaves, rice, spices, nuts and lemons.
Hummus: chickpeas, oil and different spices.
Tabouleh: parsley, tomatoes, mint, onions, lemon juice and oil.
We have some different kinds of food, but don’t worry…we still love PIZZA!
We LOVE to play futbol (soccer) at recess!
This year we got a new playground to play on at recess.
We like to go camping in the desertwith our friends.
When we go camping we have fun playing in the sand.
We go sand boarding – it’s like snowboarding, but on sand.
We even ride camels and horses into the desert sometimes.
There are a lot of pyramids in Egypt to go visit.
There are many things to see, like the Sphinx and King Tut’s tomb.
