I'm no longer allowed to walk home alone with Amir at night because apparently EVERY Egyptian man wants to rape me. Welcome to Cairo, BYU-style.
My three friends were forced to disrobe in front of Maadi Club security men. Afterwards, they told me they wished I was with them because I would have just flat out refused. I do that a lot here. I just pretend not to understand and say no and walk away. No one at the pool messes with me anymore because I'm such a mean American woman (I learned the art of aggressive independence from my dear mom).
