The Legendary Rock Band ’The Scorpions’ from Germany Give Concert in Cairo
on November 17, 2005
As part of its ’Middle East Tour 2005 – Peace for All' the legendary rock band ’The Scorpions’ from Germany will give a concert in Cairo (next to the pyramids of Giza) on November 17, 2005. 'The Scorpions’ - world famous for their songs such as 'Wind of Change" or 'Still Loving You' - will present their hits on acoustic instead of on conventional electrical guitars, based on the unplugged album Acoustica.

The event is organised by the Cairo based Sports Plus. Tickets will be sold through Virgin Mega Store and Cilantro cafés. Ticket values are 350 L.E. and 1200 L.E. (VIP Seated).

’The Scorpions’ are considered one of the most successful German rock bands ever. The worldwide top single of 1991, 'Wind of Change', became the hymn to freedom in Eastern Europe and to the end of the Cold War. In 1996, ’The Scorpions’ were the first international hard rock band to play in Beirut after the civil war in Lebanon. Their songs and words cover global issues and reflect what people around the globe feel about life.

Musically, their compositions span the spectrum between driving rock riffs and deeply emotional power rock ballads.

For more information on the event, please contact Sports Plus, Mr. Garo Varjabedian, Tel. 02 - 4183470 or 6907066 or e-mail to info@elestaad.com.

Body & Soul


Professsional Footreflexology

The reflex zones of our feet mirror our whole body: every organ, gland, bone or muscle is mapped on certain areas in the feet. With applying acupressure on these points, footreflexology is a benefitial medical assistance to the physical relief of a wide range of symptoms such as:

  • general stress or fatigue, concentration problems
  • bloodpressure and circulation
  • shoulder/neck problems
  • muscle tensions
  • back problems, sciatic nerve, arthritis
  • digestion
  • urinary system (kidney, bladder)
  • migraine
  • nervous system and sense organs (sinus and ear/balance problems)
  • hormonal problems
  • spinal cord issues
  • joint problems
  • vascular system(heart, blood vessels, lymphatic)

A footreflexology treatment takes 50mins for both feet and stimulates the whole body, restores physical balance and releases tensions and toxins. It maintains well-being and the increase of general immunity.

Appointments are available in a private clinic in Hurghada from 10am to 2pm.
Please contact Birgit Baumann 010123 1400 or 3445959.







PARENTS & KIDS - Thanksgiving

Apple Candlesticks

This unusual table centerpiece is ephemeral -- but it's beautiful while it lasts.

Large Rome Beauty apples (that will stand straight on the table)

Waxed paper
Potato peeler
Lemon juice

Time needed: Under 1 Hour

1. Using an apple corer, make a hole about halfway through the middle of an apple. Make the hole as straight as possible and remove the core piece.

2. Insert a candle into the hole. It should fit tightly; if the hole is too large, wrap waxed paper around the candle's end.

3. Older kids can decorate the apples by carefully carving designs in the skins with the tip of a potato peeler (to prevent the designs from turning brown, rub them with lemon juice)

4. Arrange the candleholders in a circle on a plate or cutting board.







The asparagus belong to the lilies' family. They come in different varieties: thick or thin. Its colors range from green to pink or white. Since the Roman times they have been considered a treat.

  • Spaghettini 350 g
  • Green asparagus 200 g
  • Whipping cream 100 g
  • Grated Parmigiano Reggiano 50 g
  • White onion 30 g
  • Butter 20 g
  • Basil 15 leaves
  • Ham 100 gr
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste

1. Mince the onion and cut the ham in small cubes.

2. Boil the asparagus' tips (cut also into little pieces) in a liter of salted water for three minutes.

3. Brown the ham with the butter in a non stick frying pan. Add the asparagus' tips and a touch of salt.

4. Boil the Spahettini in plenty of salted water, drain it al dente. And put it in the pan with the sauce. Add the heavy cream then the basil. Let the sauce thicken. Stir constantly. After a couple of minutes, remove from the fire and serve warm with Parmigiano Reggiano.


If the fresh asparagus are not available use the from the glas ore the frozen ones ( just as good), but remember that they are easy to break. Use extra asparagus' tips to garnish the plate.

Suggested Wine
For this delicate dish we suggest a white, medium bodied wine. It has to be served cool. For example, Colli di Rimini Bianco or a Bianco di Scandiano.
