new women friends in rehab city cairo

hi my name is maggie, i lived in rehab city for 3yrs and came back to the uk for 4yrs i am planning to go back to egypt in sept 2011 and.. would like to invite any new ladies that have came from the uk to get together for some company. I will be moving back to rehab city with my two daughters age 14 and 12, and would love to make some friends. i It would be nice for new people from the uk to feel happy in egypt and making new friends helps people to settle in and be happy around where they are living. so anyone moving to rehab with family it would be nice to contact me and we can meet for a chat.

Hi Chocolata, I'm from the uk :) happy to meet up in Cairo when you arrive. They say once you've tasted the Nile you'll keep coming back so I guess it's true :-p

Hi chocolata,

I'm in katameya heights, and would love to meet up around el rehab...there's a new area opening up nearby called downtown katameya, which would be a good choice too.

I'm a fellow Brit, just arrived a month ago-would be great to have some new friends:)

Hi
My name is Agnieszka. I am from Poland. My partner /Brit/ will be working in Cairo for next 12 months. I am considering to move there as well. The company rents a flat in Rehab. I like the area a lot. I spent there three weeks (in January and in May). I am worried about finding a job, I cant imagine staying at the flat all the time. I have been working in accountancy/finance for 13 years. It seems like there aren't many job offers for women in Cairo. We don't have kids, so I need to keep myself busy when my partner is at work.I am worried I will go mad on my own in the flat. How do you cope with that?

Welcome to Expat.com Agnieszka! :)

I hope you find lot of new contacts on the site.

Hi Agneiszka

My names Max, and like you I'm here in Cairo looking for a job whilst my husband works and I have no children either (just my cat)-it's been one month here now.

It can be quite difficult but I find things to do! First thing I make sure that I don't rush to do anything anymore-otherwise I run out of things to do-this is new to me as I like doing lots of things. Also i have learnt to drive 'cairo style' so I explore different areas of Cairo to find things we need (butchers, house things). I look for jobs, enjoy having the time to read the newspaper, teaching myself Arabic etc. If I don't find work in the next 2-3weeks I'll start some volunteering.

And as Maggie/cherie have mentioned, I'm looking fwrd to some new friends and ideas of things to do when I go to the Wednesday am coffee mornings.

I'm not sure if that helps? I do have the odd day where I'm wondering how long I can keep going without a job and I might be going crazy, however for the joy of eating breakfast, reading the newspaper, whilst sitting in a gorgeous sunny garden everyday....it passes!

If you do come across, would be great to meet for a coffee:)

Max

Hi Max

Wow, driving in Cairo!!! I am a car addicted person but I am not brave enough to drive in Egypt.
I am just about to finish MBA so I will not come back to Cairo before the end of July.
I will keep trying to find a job but I have big doubts about women position in that country :(
It's good to hear that you are trying to organize your time.
I will contact you when I am back to Cairo.
By the way I love coffee from On the Run ;)

Hi Mona,

Flowergirl is right, you'd be very welcome to the public socials :) It's not nice to be without friends in such a huge city! ;) But we don't normally venture out the Rehab I'm afraid, it's hard enough getting a group together in Zamalek!! :rolleyes:
