The pyramids and sphinx at Gizeh

"Quick Camel-ride"

Harm, wrote me "The beer is still in the fridge!"
Did write him back "Don't drink it, I'm there"

Had already planned my schedule for '82 - a 90 days trip around the world
Realized that this was a chance to see something from Egypt
Some 7 extra vacation-days ('83) were easily found in our flexible scheme

Visited Harm and Marry in Cairo
Delft Hydraulics did have a project in the Nile delta
he lived with his family for 3 years in Cairo
Knew "the MEYER's" as a "Delft Hydraulics-colleaque"
"Flower-float members of our group POMPONIUS "
( Check out these dahlia-flowerfloats )
"Bicycle partner -NWH- for several years"
"and of course as a real "VENOSE"
( VENOSE - resident of VOLLENHOVE in our dialect )
"Small World"

Finally! - The BEER and CHICKEN were both king-size
The CHICKEN is still as a NILE-goose on my mind
