here i go again na nana na

Here I go again, another trip to Cairo and another apartment hunt. Didn’t think it was that difficult, I thought I wasn’t demanding khales.

Just a small apartment, 90-120m, it is taking me more than 2 weeks skipping lectures and spending the weekends with interesting people. Though I went to specialized companies but I found the same treatment as I found with samasra. Think I still have a bit long and bumpy road before I can settle down.

Deep inside me, feel Cairo is the devil, and I am selling my self to it, (bedazeled and Faust struck me most now)

Fellow bloggers do dig in with me in this, I just need a 90-120m appt, in an acceptable location, to be near to giza, specifically the zoo as much as possible, can pay 200,000 cash, 3ala el tarabiza, and install the remaining amount with monthly payment not exceeding 3,000 gondi. And if the appt is eligible for mortgage, I can pay for it 400,000.

Maadi, Mokatam, Manyal and Doki are on top of my list, Nasr city, Tagamo3, 6th of October, and Heliopolis (though love the architecture) are rather far, but I am keeping an open mind.

Advices regarding, how to select an appt, price range, nice places and connections to people who know their way around such matters are most welcomed. And if inshaa Allah all went ok, tips and tricks to furnish such an apartment in the most “cost effective” way is welcomed.


Ps. won’t be willing to sacrifice at least a 32’ LCD TV with surround sound and DVD.

life rhythm is the key
