Happy New Year!

It's about 6.45pm local time and the muezzins have just finished their post-sunset calls to prayer. As it's 3.45am in Sydney, everyone "back home" has already watched the fireworks, twice, enjoyed copious amounts of alcohol and probably went to bed a couple of hours ago.

Meanwhile, Jace and I are here in our hotel in downtown Cairo, enjoying our respective bottles of duty free Chivas Regal and Absolut Berri Açaí.

It might not sound like much, but we're loving our quiet NYE in.

I hope 2011 brings with it joy, love, laughter, peace, prosperity and good health to you all!
