What’s up Cairo Guide to Survive The Holidays 

Published

on

It’s a long weekend and people are either traveling or stuck in Cairo. Whether you’re celebrating Easter or Sham Elneseem or neither, here is your true guide for a peaceful pleasant holiday:

Note for self when traveling: Admit the Truth and don’t complain

Unless you’re staying at a private property, don’t expect good service. It’s crowded everywhere in hotels, restaurants, at the beach: deal with it. Prepare your escape kit i.e. headphones, beverages, and light snacks.

Play it  smart

Bear in mind that you’re likely to get stuck in traffic jams on high ways. Make sure to have some good music and enough snacks on board. A smart solution is to travel very early in the morning. Always be cautious on high ways.

Or, enjoy Empty Cairo

Some make smart decisions to stay and enjoy empty Cairo during holidays. Don’t be fooled by this platonic idea. Cairo is partially empty. If you ever think of going to public parks on Sham ELneseem day, then you’ll probably join another  couple of millions there. Do some search; other destinations on the outskirts of the city might be ok.

Look at things from a different perspective

Think smart. Your balcony or the roof your building can be quite a good escape in Sham ELneseem. Put some effort on decorations to get the festive atmosphere. Invite family and friends to get the party starting.

Make it real fun. 

Google ideas and plan some fun activities for your gathering. A lot of eating will take place these days, why not add more fun to it? Arrange a cooking/ food styling competition. Ask men to compete and women get to set and cheer. Make it more challenging and ask children (if there any) to be the judges.

Surviving Feseekh

Rememeber the symbolic idea behind feseekh; whatever that is, it doesn’t mean you have to eat it all. You’re not going to starve after this day, so take it easy with salted fish.

If you don’t like Feseekh don’t judge others who do. Your ancestors have been eating this thing for the last 7000 years. Show some appreciation please. To survive the smell, you can always use a mask or the traditional Laundry Clamp.

Lemons and onions 

Lemons, lemons, lots of lemons. Lemons and limes kill germs, bacteria, and add a good taste to your meal. You definitely need a lot of it. It also help defeating strong odor.

Fresh green onions play a leading role in Sham ELnessm. It alters the taste and good for your whole immune system. But not necessarily to your love life. Especially if you’re at the beginning of a thing don’t get too intimate when onion is around.

Final advice

With Feseekh, renga, meloha, eggs, onions all around these colorful days, always stay in open areas. Open windows and doors; it’s probably contaminated inside.

Happy Holidays everyone
