at a flick of a switch....

see- everything here just changes at the drop of a hat (or flick of a switch) . I really do feel like I am on an emotional rollercoaster.....

yesterday, without having seen me dance, and for no reason, a manager cut my days on the boat to next to nothing (not enough to live) and since then I have been in tears and stressed about how to live and why they did that, what to do now, etc etc...................

Now, today all change again and now on this next schedule from tomorrow til end Jan (16th- 31st), I am working EVERY SINGLE NIGHT! so from nothing to everything, all from a phone call.

So if you want to see me dance over the next 2 weeks- come to the Nile Pharoah boat, Cairo!

How long are your sets on the boat? I'll be in Cairo in mid-February, staying out in giza. I'll check back to see if I can catch one of your dates. I definitely want to go out to see dancers every night I'm there. Anyone else you recommend? I'd love to see Dina but I hear she dances at 3am. I heard Randa might dance on the Nile Maxim boat?

Your site has been pretty interesting, reading about what it's like there.

Raq on. :-)

I dance 2x15mins sets on each deck of the boat.

hope you do get a chance to ome see me- I fly to Scotland on 21st feb- so hoping our paths will cross!

Rhanda for sure- best place to see here though is the Marriot nightclub in the Marriot Hotel in Zamalek. she starts later there than on the boat- but the set is longer, and stage larger and she has a proper orchestra with her- so all round better expereince!

see you soon inshallah!
