Jacinto in Cairo

New ring tones; Brazilian belly-dancers

An Egyptian man at the bar last night had for his ring tone "We Wish You a Merry Christmas." Could he be Coptic? unaware? joking? I just don't know. Try to imagine your life if everytime some called your cell (even in June!) you heard that dinky little version of "We Wish You a Merry Christmas."

Another Egyptian man, who lives in New York, arrived in Cairo to visit his mom a couple days ago. Aboard his KLM flight was a troupe of 35 Brazilian belly-dancers coming to Cairo for a competition. Like China, I suspect Brazil must be up to something, plying its "comparative advantages" as the economists say.
