WORKING IN CAIRO !!!!!

I still have to write up about the closing show of the Nile group festival- but figured this new needed aired asap.....

Tonight I did my first 'legal' days work as a bellydancer in Cairo!!!

I am performing (almost nightly) at the restaurant boat the 'Nile Pharoah' (and sometimes on the 'Golden Pharoah' (also known as the Nile and Golden 'Pharon') Which are the boats docked by the corniche in Giza, beside the four seasons hotel. All gold and pharonic stylie... Small dancefloor- but hey- it my debut in Cairo and everyone has to start somewhere!!!

My band are the Safaa Farid band (as seen with the Farha tours in UK with Yasmina and co.)

If you are in Cairo and want to come and see me call the Pharoahs on 02 570 1000 to book!

It has been such a long hard struggle to get all the paperwork finalised etc and all of you my friends and family have supported me all the way and given me the self belief to keep going, to not give up hope of achieving the dream.... and now it is all done and I have danced my first night I can tell the whole world!!!!!!!

Lorna, the first Scottish bellydancer to perform in Cairo!

Very happy (in case you hadn't got that jist by now!!!)
