Via Hilton

So Easter is here and for the unfortunate ones that are stuck in Cairo, I’d like to inform you that you have nothing to worry about. All my friends are already in Gouna and Dahab having an eggcellent time, but I refuse to wallow in self-pity because I haven’t pre-planned my Easter better.
