Morning market in Cairo
I woke up this morning wondering how much getting sick on a cruise comes down to luck, and how much comes down to care and attention.
Walking through the corridors to get to the cafeteria I noticed a bad smell outside one of the cabins – later I realized I recognized that smell; it meant somebody inside was really, really sick. The cafeteria is still giving us “silver service” where the staff serves us – we aren’t allowed to touch anything. While lined up for coffee I had a guy in one ear telling me this was all to save money, while listening in the other ear to a lady telling the staff that they needed to cleanup the back deck, and her family had gone downstairs to call medical.
I never thought that heading into Cairo I would be able to relax a little bit about getting sick!
