This is the total accumulation of rain I have experienced since leaving Portland in June. Spotted on the new campus of American University in Cairo.
Last week was Eid, a Muslim and national holiday in Egypt. The university was closed, so a few friends and I went to the Sinai Peninsula. We were on the Gulf of Aqaba, which flows into the Red Sea. The gulf is small that we were close enough to watch the moon and sun rise over Saudi Arabia!
