2 down, 22 to go. Skype rocks!


Just finished a Skype conversation with my wonderful Felicity. Skype has to be one of the greatest inventions in the world for people that live away from their home country. It's amazing to talk for free to my wife 3,000 miles away in England and to have video conference calls with my sister 2,000 miles away in India. It really does rock.

Anyway, she and Holly and Hannah survived their Alitalia experience to Heathrow via Milan, and spent the night with Felicity's parents, then flew up to Manchester yesterday with British Airways and are now very comfortably and happily holed up with our best friends in Liverpool.

Holly and Hannah went to school today in Liverpool with one of Holly's friends, and were the centre of attention. They did an Egypt slide show and gave a "show and tell" kind of talk, and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Holly did the end of year tests in her friend's class, and got 100% in all of them! Maybe after all, at least one of the Jaffreys will succeed academically! Makes me very proud of our little Christian school here in Cairo.
