Newsflash: Chaos in Egypt

Alix' participation in national Egyptian 'Day of Rage'

Wanton acts of destruction...of bus tickets

Chaos in the capital forces Alix to respond affirmatively

This restaurant was the scene of intense dinner invitations

Political unrest and turmoil in Hurghada

Good way to beat the peak hour traffic- into submission

Is she just going to sleep through this entire revolution, or what?

Everyday heroes- Australian consular officials at Cairo airport got us out of Egypt and safely to Frankfurt inside of 18 hours. Absolute legends.


  1. I support Alix's choice of action.
    Non resistance. Non violence.

    So did ya get to fly out in a C-130. Did ya Jace? Did ya??

  2. No mate, it was a Qantas charter flight. I have never been happier in my life to see a flying kangaroo, I can tell you that much!

  3. correct me if I'm wrong but you seem like you don't agree with the egyptian revolution, do you? ..

  4. Anonymous: You are wrong. As travellers present in Egypt at the time of the revolution, it was an inconvenience for us, that's all. Our plans were disrupted, our flights with Egyptair were cancelled with no chance of being refunded and we were evacuated to Frankfurt, a rather uninteresting city in a country we never intended to visit.

    While we were in Egypt I couldn't help but think, great going folks, you are rising up in a democratic display of people power. Good for you. However, since you have tolerated Mubarak for the last 30 years, couldn't you have waited another week until we were out of Egypt!?
