Timing in this country is crazy. I knew there existed a Bengali Standard Time or Indian Standard Time which makes fun of the fact that desis can’t get somewhere on time usually late by 30 minutes or an hour. We used to joke about it all the time with my other Indian friends whenever there were parties or cultural events.
But the Egyptian timing is just way off. We are talking about hours. I might just adding two hours to every time someone tells me to meet up or be someplace. AUC events are in the exact category. For our Bedouin experience yesterday, we were required to show ourselves around 4:30, didn’t leave until after 6pm. They said it was because the bus was lost in directions. ok.
I am not sure if this is something I should get used to.
