- A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

The Culture Vultures Ride Again.
The Catacoumbs of Alexandria.
This one cost Hani an opportunity at some really interesting shots of Egyptian Gods. Why? Because he failed to turn the flash off. When he took the picture (OK, maybe we weren't supposed to take pictures, but the ruling was unclear as you will see) the flash alerted a shrill voiced guide who proceeded to shame the Hell out of us.
But, the catacoumbs are vast and multi-layered. Not a bad place to spend all eternity while you decay.
How would YOU interpret this?
Hani enjoys poking around in the ruins of ancient Egypt. Sometime Egypt pokes back.
There a lot of HOT girls in Egypt. This was not one of them, but it was the best I could do on short notice. Or long notice for that matter. At least she still had her head attached. The ones we saw while diving the next day off the coast of Alex were lacking in that very important department.
Always the modern city encroaches upon the ancient.
