Egyption Ration?

Post by housil » Sun May 25, 2008 9:29 am

After all this man made disappointments of not-canned-food

before we

Sorry to hear you didn't find any true Egyptian rations but it looks like you found plenty of other interesting things to eat. How was the "bird tongue"?

Great pics - thanks for posting!

I guess it`s we had to leave home at 2:00am to get our flight at 6:00am.
We were more tired than hungry...
