Eid Shopping

I got some of the Eid shopping done. Yusef still needs a long sleeved shirt. Sara needs a pair of shoes (she wants pink loafers!). Jenna needs stockings and shoes. Adam, Nora and Ibrahim have not even begun yet.

Actually I think the only bad thing is the crowds. Clothes are plentiful here this year. All colors, styles and sizes. Elhamdulillah! The good (?) old days when there was nothing in the few shops are over, and I hope they never return.

There are tons of beggars out there. I can't imagine where they all come from. They seem to pop out left and right during Ramadan. A little Egyptian girl came up to us with her hand out. Mustafa asked her how old she was and she said she was seven. I think she was more like a malnourished 12-year-old. It's very sad. At the same time most of these beggars look healthy enough to do an honest days work - but since they can make more money begging they don't even bother looking for a job. Now that is more than sad!
