Norm Tucker is a good friend of the Maadi Messenger. We regret of course that he now lives in Australia but such is the life of many expatriates, they come and go. The relationship between expatriates living in Egypt and Ramadan can be a love-hate relationship. Some might argue that Ramadan is the ‘most unproductive month of the year’. The excitement of the children was very evident, the colours of the different teams were striking and the organisation by Cairo American College (CAC) staff and students was amazing. This summer will mark my third Ramadan spent in Egypt since I began traveling to the country in January 2011.  My first experience of an Egyptian Ramadan in the summer of 2011
