I got some sort of bacteria/infection/parasite. I won''t know for sure what it is until the doctor gets results from some tests. I won''t into details, but let''s just say that I''m so dehydrated that the nurse who drew my blood for tests today couldn''t find my vein and had to poke around in my other arm (and I''m always told I have "great veins" when I have my blood drawn).

SO did not propose, and I knew he wasn''t going to, but there were about 1 million romantic moments during the trip that would have been perfect for a proposal. Oh well.

Anyway, so here I sit, taking ANOTHER day off work, drinking Gatorade and trying to catch up with the PS gossip.

What did I miss?!?

I''ve never posted a photo on PS from my mac before, so if this doesn''t work. I apologize. If it does, then this is S and I at the pyramids at Giza.

Awesome pic - did a guy try to take your picture and then ask for money? I thought that place was hilarious - I think I have a similar picture but the guy had taken his head scarf and put it on my dad.

I''m glad you had a good trip minus the bug! Hope you feel better soon.

Actually, yes! I did take a picture with a guy and then he made me give him a dollar. Quite a scam. And I spent the rest of the day worrying that I was going to get head lice from wearing his icky scarf.

Here's picture of us at the gallabeya party on the Nile cruise. S wore a traditional gallabeya and I wore a belly dancing outfit. He was constantly asked by the locals if he was Egyptian during this trip. He's not. Just English and German. No one knows where the dark hair and skin comes from. All his brothers have the same "look" too.

Thank you all for the great comments! It was a FANTASTIC vacation. It was actually more like an expedition. Not a lot of down time.

This picture is of us when we actually had the afternoon at our leisure. I like it because we''re on the Nile river cruise, but you can see the temple of Luxor in the background.
