Hello all!

I am Aisha, living in Luxor for 8 years now. Originally from Finland.
Married with egyptian, we have 2 children.
Mostly I love the life in Egypt, but some things: healthcare, street 'gigolos', gossiping neighbours, some over-dramatic egyptian women ;-) make me see red...

Welcome Aisha, I'm glad you have found your way to L4U at last :) I'm only sorry it had to be such a dreadful experience that bought you here :cry:

Thanks all!

Most Egyptians are not anything like Finnish (who, 1 american friend said to me, are pensive and melancholy - but that was in the middle of winter, at summer time Finnish are quite happy!), but the strangest thing is that while my husband is very Egyptian - happy, loves to laugh - he is very Finnish from inside; quiet and he hates the hassle here, he would be so happy in Lapland, sitting on the top of the arctic hill...

I know one other Finnish woman married here, but nice to know that there is more us Finns here....

[shadow=seagreen][face=Comic Sans MS]WELCOME[/face][/shadow] :)
You are certainly not the only Finnish woman married to a Luxor man, but I think that I have heard of more wives or couples living in Finland. It is possible, can be exciting and, in your case fruitful, to have silver AND gold, night AND day, Sun AND Moon, North AND South! All complimenting the other, sounds natural to me! Welcome to the forum! :D

Besides you Aisham, I only know one other finn living in Luxor permanently too. But there are loads of us who spend a lot of time there for one reason or another :) I have been coming and going for the past 6 years now, I work as a tourleader in Luxor. Maybe we have met before, who knows ;)
