Welcome to Egypt

After we arrived to Cairo, the guys that picked us up told us few times "welcome to egypt" and laughed... i heard some other aiesecers around saying so and laugh... then I did not understand it but was becoming suspicious... now I know... you walk on the streets and there are six things you will hear constantly (ok, I dont understand Arabic so I talk only about the English frazes you will hear):

- "Welcome to Egypt" (Thank you)
- "Hello" (Do I actually know you??)
- "What is your name" (I never got one... sorry!)
- "How are you" (I was fine till you asked, thank you)
- "You are cute" (Must have been some donkey next to me when this was said)
- "You are beautiful" (Well, you are not)

Sounds are there too. The guys whistle, use their tongues to make the weirdest of sounds. That makes you want to turn your head by instinct and see what is it... I learnt not to look... (Do that to your wife, moron!)
