Photo Round Up – Week 51

5 photo round up of what I saw/did this week.

Hope you all enjoy them.

Tahrir Square, Cairo

Just another peaceful Friday in Tahrir Square... that yup of course the news and media will not share with you. I LOVE TAHRIR SQUARE!

Ramses Station, Cairo

I had already been to the Cairo train station but didn't have my camera on me... this week I took a friend to buy her ticket and made sure I had it with me. I love train stations... I think they are so interesting and pretty. This is Ramses Station the main train station of Cairo and think it's so pretty. I love this shot because it shows everyone with luggage... and I wonder where they are going.

Weighting yourself on the streets of Cairo!

Ahh Cairo... a city where you can do anything anywhere... I was able to weight myself on the street the other day for $0.32 cents... yup that cheap. I love this shot cus it's from above and you can see my shoes and the lady looking at my weight. Yup I weight 75kg... which is 165lbs! I love it... travel is the best diet.

 

Horus Eye - tattoo, Egypt

So i need you to be honest, what do you think of this??? Don't lie to me... please tell me in the comments how you feel! I have wanted a tattoo for ever & have always known where I want it (on my right leg calf muscle), but never knew what & well now that I have been in Egypt & love it I want to get a this. The EYE OF HORUS it is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power and good health. Also believed it was intended to protect the king in the afterlife and to ward off evil.

Dahab, Egypt!

Ahhh little old Dahab, a beach town I have always wanted to visit and am finally here. I've been here 2 days and love it already. This is the amazing color of the water... i am shoulder deep and can still see my beautiful toes! Oh & look at the far end of the photo on the right... you see that lil mountain range? That is SAUDI ARABIA? Fucking crazy I am laying out and watching SAUDI ARABIA just across the way.

    • EEEEeee I really love it a lot! I have always known that is where I want it and am happy I finally know what I want. I am going to get when I come back to Egypt after India and Turkey. I love Egypt so much…

      Thanks about the calf muscle… still got my ballet legs. Oh & um how have you never been to the Cairo train station? It’s an amazing station.

  3. I love that idea for a tattoo!!!

  4. I like the tattoo! I want to get one done in Thailand by the monks. Shouldn’t you put it a little lower though? Who is going to see way up there, lol?

    • Thanks Ashlea, that would be cool to get one done by monks. As for mine it’s low enough. It’s all the way on the claf muscle, so when I wear shorts it will be visible for people walking behind me.

  5. I remember being awe struck when I walked into that train station… Though I only saw it at night!

  6. It’s a good idea for a tattoo as it symbolises lots for you. I’d like it a bit smaller and to the side of that great looking calf muscle. I just think the symbolic eye could look, I dunno, corny? in the middle. Is it something in ten years time that you will see yourself loving as much as now? I have quite a prominent wrist one that is relevant to my culture (its called a ta moko) and hugely personal and nine years on, I still treasure it. But I waited for years until I found the right tattooist, and an idea of what I wanted. He brought it to life. And I think that’s why I will always treasure it as it’s all me. Sure, the symbols are not unique to me but he’s incorporated those into my ‘story’. So what I’m suggesting is make it not just a copy of the Horus but somehow incorporate you. If you can. Orrrr, come to New Zealand bro and you will get your dream, awesome tattoo! But if you just can’t wait then do it. You know.
    Great pics too, love that looking at Saudi Arabia one. Those moments blow my mind too.

    • Vicki, yeah I have thought about moving it to the side a bit, but I like the size alot. I’m not sure if its corny… I know I have always wanted one and there, just never what so now that I know I think its something I will like forever. I think underneath it I will write a few words in arabic. We’ll see what I do with it.

  7. Ooooh a tattoo! A rule of thumb I’ve heard often is “don’t ink it until you think it over for one year.” I think you’re smart to wait until you return to the US so you have time to consider all the details. That tattoo would remind you forever of your time abroad, especially reaching Egypt after dreaming of it for so many years. It’s a great idea, just be 100% sure it’s the design you want since it’s permanent. Who had the tattoo you took a picture of?

    • Hey Pat yeah that sounds like a good rule… in my case I will think it over for 6 months. If when I come back I still want it I am going to go for it. I think it would be amazing to get it while I am abroad and make it a permanant reminder of my trip around the world. Oh & that picture is me… i got it in Henna… just to test it out!

      • I look forward the pictures when you get it done permanently! I want to get a tattoo sometime during my future adventures too – like you, I’ve had the spot and general idea of it picked out for a long time. As long as it means something very dear to your heart, something that really defines you and what you’ve done, then you won’t every get tired of it or regret it. It’s a physical mark of how much you’ve been marked inside. :)

        • Yes I will def share it once I get it for sure… and oh I am interested in seeing what it is you get too. I’s nice to have at least 50% of the job done. the spot…lol!!!

    El tatuaje, es buena idea pero creo que me gustaria mas en otra parte de tu cuerpo, como lo hiciste ahora dibujalo y ponerlo en diferentes partes, (solo una idea) otra cosa puedes tomar la foto de lejos para poder mirar como se mira a lo lejos :) Abrazos.

    • Jaime Davila says:
