March 1918
Had a sleep after dinner and about 3.30 Long & myself went out to Heliopolis & had afternoon tea with Mrs & Miss Curtis. They are very nice people being friends of Mr & Mrs Gunn of Alexandria. It was them that wanted us to call. We went on to Briggs where we had a nice dinner & lefty for home at about 10.30. There was a terrible crowd in Cairo. Sunday night is the night most people seem to go to the pictures & other places of amusement. It was hard making headway through the crowd when we left the tram.

Monday 4th
Was quiet busy all the morning. The warm weather makes one lazy & inclined to sleep. It is quite a custom here to sleep after lunch. All the shops close till 3 & 3.30. We dont start work till 5 pm, so manage to get in a decent sleep if we want to. During the hot weather people shutter up their houses during the day
