After our relaxing visit to the Gulf of Aqaba we were horrifically reintegrated into Cairo culture by being “given the cultural opportunity” to eat pigeon by our Egyptian intern coordinator.
The meat actually wasn’t bad at all, that was the least of your problems. You are expected to eat the bones (which are crunchy but brittle) and consume almost the entire bird. After the first few bones I started to feel very sick. Actually, just looking at this picture makes me sick to my stomach, so I’m going to leave it at that for now. Once was enough!
