Sephiroth AC - sunset Sephy

My home and native land

The moment when I "knew" I was back in Canada was while I was waiting for my luggage at the baggage carousel, watching the news... and rather than focusing on the horrible rapist father in Austria, or Random Suicide Bomber Du Jour, their big "crime" story was about a car keying suspect.

Oh Canada. ♥♥♥ Never ever change. ^_^

So I've been home for about a day, albeit conscious for only part of that time and mentally checked out for a good chunk of the rest. I hate jetlag, and the journey was particularly bad in terms of getting sleep. Plus I messed up when I got in... went to sleep at 6 PM without ordering in any food (nothing in the fridge as I cleaned it out before my trip), then woke up at 2 AM absolutely ravenous. Ah well. The flight from Amsterdam was decent, and I got to watch Elizabeth: The Golden Age (lady_pamina, didn't you do a paper on it?).

Soon I'll have to start the lengthy process of going through my photographs and writing up all the events of our travels... but in a nutshell, what did I think of Egypt?

So... was it perfect? No, not even close. Did I enjoy it? Yes, immensely! I'm so glad I went. Would I do it again? I'm not sure. I did manage to see almost everything I wanted to, and the negative qualities are a bit of a turnoff... but then, some of it I would love to see again, and there are still a few things here and there that I missed. I think I could be persuaded back if a friend/hypothetical husband wanted to visit. Otherwise, I have to save my money for my inevitable return to Japan. ^_^

Anyway, I should get to bed. Night all! ^_^

PS anarchicq, drop me a line, I do have a small Anubis statue if you're interested.
