hi, charira.......I lived in Cairo (Mumbai to be more exact) for years. Loved the experience and most of all the Egyptian people and their culture. Learned to cook a few of the local dishes and those that I didn't I loved. Welcome to DC and hope to see you post some good recipes and interact with us. Why are you learning Japanese?

I'm sorry, did not mean Mumbai, Cairo (my husband was talking about people coming from there to here for a visit and I can't carry on two thoughts at once-ha!) and I meant to say Maadi, Egypt not Mumbai. I guess the Alzheimer's is kicking in.
