Ok, here goes... Breaking Bellydance news from Cairo



My big announcement....



I have left the Nile Pharoah's boat, Cairo. After performing there for the last 7 years.

The Pharaohs Cruising restaurants - my old workplace!



The reason?

I left there because I have signed a new contract, to perform at the prestigious Five Star, Fairmont Nile City Hotel, Cairo.

Fairmont Nile City Hotel, Cairo, Egypt



I am very excited about this transition!

I will be performing regularly, with my band, in the beautiful oriental restaurant, Bab El Nil (and at other venues within the Fairmont too).

Bab El Nil - the entrance way to my new workplace!



They have never contracted a dancer there before, so I will be opening up a new quality venue in Cairo for bellydancers. Quite an honour and a legacy. A new phase in my life and career.


It has been a roller coaster of a year, and i will tell you the full story in my next blog entry...

....Or maybe tell you between sets at Fairmont Nile City, if I see you there first!

Hi Lorna,

I can understand your frustrations about living in Egypt (I just read your 'the last 6 months have been hell' post as well. Whilst I do not live in Egypt I am a Brit living in Dubai but in my job as an investment banker I look after Egypt and every 3 weeks am there for 5 days-usually staying at the Four Seasons Nile Plaza. Hopefully one day I can see you in action. It must be fascinating living in Cairo-I am full of respect for you because it is so fast paced and full on!!
