Have you noticed how the majority of Egyptians like an afternoon kip ?
I understand it in the heat of the Summer but Winter.
I can't sleep when there is light in the sky, far to busy thinking up daft things to invent, repair, upgrade, feed!
Someone once said "Your far to busy' Yeh! well, "I can rest when I'm dead'
Why you ask ? 'Well I'm awaiting a secondary delivery of Winter wood pics to follow.... 8)
Ps: When I was refurbing this mud-shack of mine it was during Ramadan 07, the whole crew went to sleep after their
midday meal..'jesus wept!

I too have a kip in the afternoon so I can charge up my batteries ready for the afternoon's activities. I have also been know to have senior moments as well. So it's not just Egyptians.

We always sleep for a couple of hours in the afternoon to get ready for the evening activities.

I'm a strong advocate of the traditional afternoon kip, perfect way to recharge the batteries and live a longer, healthier life. Feel sorry for those that have a life governed by the working hours. Tired yesterday after a long visit to the dentist, so went to bed at 5pm, woke up at 6am, fresh as a fiddle.

I remember Jesus, what a beautiful bird and no tiny cage - I have wondered what happened to him. Pleased to hear Jesus went to Paradise!

I went accepting that I needed two back teeth out, but when he looked at them he was confident that he could save them. Ex ray confirmed this, this cost 120Le. I need root canal treatment to flush out an abscess, then the work on the new ones, lost in translation, but my friend says he said something about screwing new ones in, and maybe screwing me on the price for the work and five visits, around 3,000-4,000Le. :lol:

I go tomorrow night, 3,500Le for root, cutting drilling first stage cap then following the crown. There is also laser treatment, but haven't a clue what that's for.
