  15. Chris and Steve Calling… second update from Cairo

    Our Directors Chris and Steve have sent this second update from Egypt. It has been a useful visit to Cairo and are both so pleased to see that the Egyptian spirit is still alive and well.

  16. Our Directors Chris and Steve are currently out discovering the new Egypt. Heres how they have found it…

    We arrived into Cairo at 5am and were met by Mohamed Khalifa (who meets all our Oasis Groups). We had an interesting discussion with Mohamed on our 45 min transfer to the Havana Hotel in Mohandesseen.
