DIARIES AND CALENDERS

Post by Chris »

Does anyone living in Luxor know where I might be able to buy a diary and desk calender in the English style?

Good luck with that one :ct

I was always very careful to get diaries etc on my occasional trips to UK as they weren’t available in Hurghada.

Never could get used to reading from what was - to me - the end :lol:

None in Ace, the only place I have found them is the American University bookshop in Cairo, long way to go though Chris.

There are several online firms operating in Egypt through which you can order English diaries/ calendars.

e.g. https://www.jumia.com.eg/diaries-journals-notebooks/

Just google “English diaries online Egypt”

How reliable their delivery arrangements are is anyone’s guess

Thanks for your suggestions. I managed to order through Souq.com - I should have tried them first!
