Elevator fear remix

Remember how I'm terrified of elevators?

Elevators in Cairo: a million times scarier as American ones. We went to look for apartments today, and found one on the 11th floor. The elevator was teeny, and to get in you opened a little door yourself. And when you went up... YOU COULD HAVE TOUCHED THE WALL OF THE ELEVATOR SHAFT. The elevator was completely open to the elevator shaft. Terrifying. Absolutely terrifying. Maybe no one has died on an American elevator in recent years, but now I have to do a little research regarding Egyptian ones.


  1. Ack! Whatever you do, DON'T TOUCH THE ELEVATOR SHAFT! I'm having all sorts of nightmarish images flashing through my head...

    Once I got stuck in an elevator in NYC but at least there was an emergency button. No emergency buttons in Cairo, I'm guessing.
