Yay! We just signed the contract for the show at Sawy (all in Arabic) ! They misunderstood my e-mail and gave us the wrong weekend, so Bashira will have to get off the plane and come straight to the concert! Yikes! The great Khamis Henkish will be our special guest – it’s an honor to have him in our show!
Today it was another day of running our asses off around Cairo. We got our bus tickets to Tel Aviv, met with Zakareiah Ibrahim, the leader of the Tambura Ensemble in Port Said, met Fati Salama, and set up almost all of our shows.
I need a vacation.
Last night we went to the old market and a bunch more people recognized me from TV. We’re looking into making Raquy and the Cavemen galabias to sell in the States!
