Good things come to those that wait......

I have been waiting for some time to meet this Lady. Marwa from Rosca.
Today, I had the chance she came to visit.

She's highly intelligent and hilariously funny, got Aida round they, are about the same age and both single.
They gossiped like a pair of old grannies..

Now you might not of heard of Marwa, but in Egypt she's famous for being herself and 'grafting for a living.

Sisi is giving her a bit of a boost and she's developing the 'celebrity bit quite well.
She speaks out 'loud and clear for women and I found a razor sharp brain, she doesn't miss much.

So Google her, 'forsa saida, Marwa until we meet again
"she said she would like to come to a film night.... 8)

Aida captivated by Marwa's words, the girls are '"shaking da tree'!

Did she ever get that tricycle for her father....and what does he do with it?

Does she speak much English? That in itself would be quite an achievement for a village girl from Luxor.

Nice one George.
A new friend for Aida as well. Hopefully your Arabic and their English will improve over time. Just don't teach them any of your bad traits!

'Moi ? "Je'ne comprends pas, anyhow she's a 'toker shhh... 8)
And a wrebble.....'We need a good film though Baz!

Ps: I thought I would get Marwa, to take Aida her two sisters Leyla and Wharda down to the Tuesday Souk.
In her new Suzuki taxi, they would all talk the 'hind legs off a donkey! lol

Poor donkeys!
Yes, I guess it would need to be a visual comedic type of film to overcome the language barrier. No S or V though.
How about "Star Leaf" 2015?
