The time has come! This afternoon, Nathan and I are flying off to Cairo. We will arrive tomorrow, and insh’Allah, receive our visas without a problem. I am also hoping that we can beat the curfew currently being enforced by Egyptian security forces, else we’ll be trapped at the airport. (At times like these, I pat myself on the back for thinking to have names & numbers handy for contacts in Egypt and the U.S. Embassy, lest we actually do find ourselves visa-less and trapped).

Fingers crossed for our safe arrival in Egypt, and our smooth passage into the city! Insh’Allah, I will post a longer report next from the comfort of our Cairene hostel, with some word on how the city fares in the midst of the latest strife. I remain cautiously optimistic about our safety, recognizing that our safety depends more on our caution than any amount of optimism.

‘Til soon!
