Make your Escape.... Alexandria


Alexandria (Al Askandrya)

Although for the past decade or so the North Coast has attracted most of the Cairene crowd that once flooded Alexandria each summer, the nation’s second city still has die-hard fans
Looking for a break from the North Coast’s steaming concrete jungle and heaving nightspots during Egypt’s cruel summer months? A visit to Alexandria can serve many ends.

If shopping’s your game, pop into the famous Attarine antique district, a gold mine where you can spend a full day shopping and browsing for little treasures. Dozens of shops are loaded with rare French-accented chairs and tables, chandeliers and home accessories. This is also the place to go for custom-made wood and wrought iron furniture for which Alex is famous.

Zan’et El-Sittat (literally, “an area crowded with women”) blends into Attarine. It is crammed with shops all a few centimeters apart. The stalls here sell everything under the sun women might possibly want, from fabric and household items to imported beauty products, all for a fraction of the price of stores in the city. Make sure you’re wearing comfortable shoes and be prepared to bargain.

Along the now-expansive corniche stands the recently renovated 15th-century Qait Bey Citadel in Anfushy, which houses a naval museum (open daily from 9am–2pm). On the opposite end of the corniche are the breathtaking Montazah Palace Gardens. This magnificent site was built in 1892 and was the summer home of the Egyptian royal family. Although the main palace is not open to the public, you can get a glimpse of what it was like by visiting El-Salamlek Palace Hotel and Casino, which used to be part of the palace. It displays a collection of original photos of the royal family as well as replicas of their antiques and furniture.
A walkabout through Downtown Alex (usually referred to as Mahattet El-Raml) is like a treasure hunt. Architectural gems are on every street corner: Just keep your head up and you can’t miss the turn-of-the-century columns, reliefs of cherubs and gargoyles as well as intricate floral patterns decorating building facades. You’re also bound to find yourself walking into the Greco-Roman Antiquities Museum (open 9am–4pm), which displays items found in and around Alexandria dating from 300 BC to 300 AD. A hop, skip and a jump from there is the Roman Amphitheater, the only example of its kind in Egypt.

For an all-in-one experience, head straight to the recently inaugurated National Museum, also Downtown (110 El Horria St., tel: (03) 486-5820, open daily from 9am to 5pm) This renovated 1929 Italian-style three-story mansion was the US consulate in Alex from 1960 until the Ministry of Culture bought the premises in 1997. The museum displays 1,800 pieces never before exhibited, spanning from the Pharaonic era to the Greco-Roman, Coptic and Islamic periods.
The culture-oriented should start with a visit to the Bibliotheca Alexandrina. Unorthodox in shape and eclectic in décor, the library houses an art collection that includes Hellenic statues and centuries-old manuscripts. For visiting information, guided tours and opening hours, check www.bibalex.org.

Body & Soul

The Human body is 80 Percent Water

The human body is 80 percent water. Perhaps that’s why so many people are drawn to oceans. Oceans, with their infinite horizons speak of possibility and freedom. The sound of wind and the waves on the shore soothe and restore.

"The sea is everything,” wrote Jules Verne in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1873). “It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides."

Looking at a globe, we see how much of the earth is water. The three major oceans, Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian, bridge the continents on which people live. Tides ebb and flow in the oceans, linking the surface of earth, the water and land, with the moon and sun in the sky.

Oceans seem timeless and mysterious. Walking along a beach we might find a coconut from a distance island, a crate label in a language we cannot read, maybe even a message in a bottle.

To some, oceans symbolize wisdom. Dalai Lama is a Mongolian name, which means "Ocean of Wisdom". For the ancient Greeks, Oceanus, a Titan, was one of the first gods. Oceans inspire musicians, artists, writers and philosophers. For millions of vacationers around the globe, the ocean is a place to recuperate and rejuvenate.

Water is essential for life on earth and for personal health. In addition to drinking water for health, consider bringing water and water imagery into your life in other ways. Choose an ocean scene for a screensaver on your computer or cell phone. Relax in a warm bath with sea salt.

Walk along the water’s edge, even a pond or stream. Place a bowl of water on your desk and float a spring leaf or flower in the water. Gaze at the bowl to rest your eyes when working.

Aquariums can lower the blood pressure of people who enjoy them. Ocean sounds generated by white noise machines enhance the sleep of listeners. Visit a nearby aquarium or find an aquarium or ocean footage images online. Hold a seashell to your ear to hear the “ocean” once more.

And next time you’re actually at the beach, breathe deeply and walk barefoot in the sand. Imagine whales singing to their calves and coral fans swaying. “The voice of the sea speaks to the soul,” wrote Kate Chopin in The Awakening in 1899. Do you think so?

Parents & Kids


Apple-Stamp Bag

  • Fabric bag (cloth grocery sacks work well)
  • Newspaper
  • Fabric paint (green, red and brown)
  • Paintbrush
  • Apple

1. Fold over some newspaper and insert it into the fabric bag, laying it flat so that the paint will not seep through. With a brush, use brown paint to fashion a tree trunk and let dry.

2. Then use a horizontally cut apple to make leaves by brushing a thin layer of green fabric paint onto the apple and pressing it around the top of the trunk. Repe

at several times (make sure to look for the star in the print).

3. After the green paint dries, cut an apple in half vertically. Pick the side that still has the stem and brush with red fabric paint. Then "hang" juicy apples on the tree.
