Settling In


I'm back in California testing my newly acquired sheesha (shisha) or water-pipe or hookah or narghile packed with inaugural mint tobacco! I've usually smoked the ubiquitous apple sheesha (can refer either to the water-pipe or the tobacco) but I've branched out...

Now for a nice cup of helba tea (aka fenugreek, often served in Egyptian caf├ęs as a companion to the sheesha)...

  1. Dear Marie,
    just a little note to say thank you for the wonderful piece on Luxor temple and the news on the restored wall. I am an admirer of your photos on flickr and I was delighted that you joined the Ancient Egyptian temples & shrines group. Hope to see more of your excellent pictures soon. I was rather astonished to find out you are a librarian as well. I work as a librarian at the School of Slavonic and East European Studies, UCL, and I spent last 10 years studying Egyptology at evening classes at Birkbeck College, University of London. One day I would absolutely love to do some good library work in Luxor as well.
    All the very best wishes,
    Lenka P(eacock)
