Dark Rainy Storm in Egypt? Here’s How to Keep it Light at Home

For some of us, it’s the best time of the year. For others, it’s a time that dampens our spirit. Either way, rainy days are a chance for you to enjoy activities that you’ve repeatedly postponed.

With a rainy weekend approaching, and since we know “having fun in the rain” isn’t really an option in Cairo, we came up with a list of activities that you can do at home to enjoy yourself, whether you’re with friends, or family, or even alone.

Snuggle up with a good book

We all have a book that we’ve been struggling to finish for months, so fix yourself a cup of hot chocolate, curl up in bed, and enjoy the read!


Baking being only for experts is a real misconception! Whether you’re into cooking or not, the pleasure of baking is unmatched. Even the mess that comes out of it will be fun, we assure you!

Watch Netflix

What’s better than chilling on your favorite sofa or your comfy bed, having some snacks, and watching one of the many promising new shows and movies on Netflix; for something extra-special and regionally-grown, try the Saudi-made short film series, Six Windows in the Desert.

Break the boredom with board games

If you aren’t into series and movie marathons, gather your siblings, friends, or even parents, and make your own kind of marathon; a board game marathon. We recommend Jenga, Scrabble, Monopoly, and cards of course. For some added nostalgia, why not break out the notebooks and play Autobees Complet!

Pamper yourself

For all the ladies who don’t usually have time for themselves, it’s your chance to pamper yourself! Invite your girlfriends over and do some natural face and hair masks.

Catch up on your chores

Yes, we know it’s not the most fun activity to do on a weekend. But we promise that once you finish all your piled up chores, you’re going to feel great and your house will be spotless.
