An observation about doing radio interviews in Egypt: Theyâ€™re constantly interrupted by the call to prayer . . . and the delivery of tea. Thereâ€™s a knock on the door. In walks someone with a tray. Delicious. And you simply canâ€™t say no. I finally learned to ask for herbal tea in the afternoons so that I could sleep at night.
