Kirei girl dal... Cairo

We all start blogging for different reasons. One day you find yourself searching interesting blogs and suddenly you are catched by Sara's words.
She's one of a kind.
She's Egyptian.
She's wonderful.
Reading her is sometimes better than a theraphy... you can believe there is something better out there. And I really hope her dream will become true one day.

Continue reading if you want to know more... if you are not hypnotized by her eyes or smile before. :)

Name, age / current location - Sara, 22. Cairo, Egypt.

Job, studies or present/ future projects? - I currently work as a program specialist at a local NGO concerned with community youth development, I have studied economics at Cairo University and I have just started my Masters degree in Economics in International development at the American University in Cairo. No, I am not a nerd :D only a geek!

Famous question... why did you start bloggin? - I started blogging because I felt the need to document my day to day life, for future reference and I also thought that maybe someone out there would be interested in what I have to share!

You said you have family from America (am I wrong?) and UK... have you been in those places? which one do you love the most and why? :) - I do have family in the US and the UK- I loved going to London for all the history and museums and etc...I have been to both really, also, in London I have the cousins, but then again you get to shop at all the cheaper places in the US!

Share a special place with us - from your city or anywhere you've been and want to share with us! - I have to favourite places in Cairo, Zamalek which is an island in the Nile, and a place very close to where I live called Korba, which is actually the oldest place in my neighbourhood.
( links of Korba photos: and korba is where I hang out almost everyday!

actually I found a picture of the cafe! It's next door to thomas cook:

and felukas in Zamalek (

I couldn't find pictures that represent zamalek to me really..

A happy memory you have and want to share with us? - My little brother's first day of school...I got him ready and took him to school. I am fourteen years older than my brother Saeed (his name literally means happy) and we are so much alike! He's my best friend :)

Sara with two friends... they all share the name!

Favourite book? why is it special to you? - The Unbearable Lightness of being, because it's more like a philosophy to me...Milan Kundera fascinates me really! Also, another book by an Egyptian author who writes in English: Ahdaf Soueif- called The Map of Love, this book is special to me for so many reasons, but I basically look up to the author because I have always wanted to write books.

I love your way of thinking, where do you get inspiration from? - I LOVE YOU! I just felt like saying that because you are being so nice to me! I think everything around me inspires fact, I am surrounded by a lot of beauty and for that I am thankful..

A dream - To write a book and to make a change or leave an impact. I want to be remembered for caring.

Favourite artist/band & song from them-why do you love them so much? - wow that's a tough question! I have a very diverse taste in music! I'll try to narrow them down..

Kiss me- six pence non the richer, because I've always liked it.
Sick cycle carousel- Lifehouse, because it reminds me of the last time I saw my grandfather
A lot of Michael Buble songs because his voice makes me happy.
She had the world- Panic at the disco, because that song almost describes me.
What a wonderful world- Louis Armstrong- it cheers me up!

Can you share with us a dish you love from egypt? - First let me tell you that Egyptians LOVE food!! I think of the dishes authentic to Egypt is Kushari, which is a mix of lentils, pasta and rice (I cook it without the pasta, I'll post a recipe soon!) and red sauce...
Also, foul (broad beans, slow cooked) there are so many ways to cook that! I found this very interesting link for you (

If you ever happen to read my blog... what would you add to it? (don't mind to critisize! ;))
- hmm, I think you should show more of the amazing person you are!
In terms of experiences and everything!
