Packing for Cairo

I'm not a naturally organised person. But as the date of travel approaches, I need to work out what I have to pack for going away.

I'm going to be away for 12 days, the days are Spring-warm, but the evenings cool, so I have to choose accordingly. What I take has to be suitable for traipsing around dusty Cairo streets, and going out to restaurants & nightclubs in the evenings. So quite a mix of clothing needed.

I started by making a list of clothing. It included 10 tops, 8 bottoms and 3 dresses. I trimmed it down yesterday 8 tops, 6 bottoms, still 3 dressess. Today, after more and more trimming, I've got the list down to 6 tops, 5 bottoms, 2 dresses. I think that's as good as it's going to get.

I had to text diva_c to check whether I should take a swimming costume (yes, just in case we decide to go for a nice relaxing afternoon round the pool).

International adaptors, including the clever one I bought last time I was flying that includes a USB charging point. Corkscrew. Scan of my passport plus address of the British Embassy (7 Ahmed Ragheb Street, Garden City, telephone 02 2791 6000). Teabags of my favourite licquorice & peppermint tea from teapigs.

It's all starting to pile up on the sofa!

Have packed kettle, mugs and swimming costume. Have tried not to take exactly the same clothes I've been taking to Cairo for the last however many years!!
