January 2005 trip to Egypt.

Houses

Most Egyptian houses are noticeably unfinished. As there is no need to protect against English-style weather, most houses are left unfinished and with no roof other than a sheet of canvas or some woven reeds, so that it is easy to add another storey if the children don't want to leave home. With their lack of glass windows (un-needed) and peeling paintwork, most houses look like wrecks although inside they may be quite luxurious with fine carpets and wall-hangings, air-conditioning and satellite TV. We had a small competition on board to photo the most tumble-down house with a satellite dish!
