Když jsem sem ve 20 letech poprvé přijela, opravdu jsem netušila, jaké dobrodružství mě čeká a jak se můj život dramaticky změní. To, co jsem zažila v Egyptě za jediný měsíc, jsem možná nezažila za celý svůj život.
Musela jsem se potýkat se spoustou potíží: společenských, kulturních, jazykových i osobních.
Egypt je opravdu jedinečná země, jako žádná jiná, a tak jsem se musela všechno učit od začátku.
Ke všemu se můj příběh odehrál v roce 2013 v Alexandrii, kdy v Egyptě probíhaly pravděpodobně nejhorší demonstrace v novodobé historii. Jen dva roky po egyptské revoluci v roce 2011.
Připojte se tedy ke mně během mých osobních dobrodružství v egyptské kultuře.
Impulzivním rozhodováním, plným spontánnosti a ocitávání se ve zvláštních situacích, jsem se propletla krásou a chaosem, které v Egyptě žijí a které Egypt nabízí. Zde jsem se našla…
Legend says: After the death of Osiris, his wife Isis did not despair of the Egyptian throne but quickly ran to hide her son Horus from the malice of Osiris’ brother Seth, who longed to be king. She took her child, and ran with him up the hill away from his uncle, and hid him in the bushes so that no one would find him, while she herself went to find her murdered husband. Horus then hid and grew up in this place called Buto, raised by Wadjet, until his adulthood. And after that he took revenge on Seth.
This place where Horus grew up has not only confused Seth but also the archaeologists. Unknown place “Buto” which they saw on the archaeological finds and on the walls of the tombs and temples but where is it?
We all know the Scorpion King from the film “The Mummy Returns” or “Scorpion King” but few know that the Scorpion King was a truly historical person who existed, however not as stated in the aforementioned Film.
Before I begin with the story itself, there is one big problem. There were two Scorpion Kings who followed after each other – King Scorpio I and King Scorpio II. We really know very little about their lives, and for a long time their existence was denied by Egyptologists. To this day, we are not sure which of them this story really belongs to.
Personally, I believe this story belongs to the second Scorpion King. Why? You’ll find out in the story itself.
Going to Egypt was always a lifelong dream of mine ever since I was five years old. When I arrived there for the first time during my twenties I really had no idea what kind of adventure awaited me and how my life would fundamentally change. What I experienced in Egypt over the course of one single month, I may not have experienced in my whole life elsewhere. I had to deal with a lot of difficulties: social, cultural, linguistic and personal. Egypt is really like no other country so I had to learn everything from the bottom up. On top of all that, my story took place in 2013 in Alexandria, when Egypt was having perhaps the worst demonstrations in modern history, just two years after the 2011 revolution of the Arab Spring.
Join me on the course of my personal adventures through Egyptian culture and self discovery. With impulsive decision making full of spontaneity and finding myself in peculiar situations, I navigated my way through both the beauty and chaos that lives in Egypt. Here I found myself.

I went to an amazing place today and I can’t believe it. We were at the American cafe “Friends” where they had everything but absolutely everything like in the show and it was just beautiful. So I was there with my husband and my daughter, and because my leg is twisted and I can’t walk on it properly, we took a taxi there.I couldn’t wait any longer, and I had to go there today, because it was now or never. I’ve been talking about it for a long time, that I want to go there, but it never worked out because of the weather. The weather in Alexandria at the moment is very bad, unpredictable and mainly it rains all the time.
One day an elderly Egyptian man, who had been working as a taxi driver in Europe already for some time, meets a beautiful foreigner. She gets into a taxi with him, and it was love at first sight. They were the same age, and they perfectly understood each other. The taxi driver immediately asked her out, and she agreed. They had a wonderful and romantic time together. He treated her just like a princess.
Well, at first it was so strange, because firstly my husband and I argued about the fact that I wanted to invite some of my Egyptian friends to the party. However my husband was against it, because he told me not to mix it. We are supposed to have only a purely family party and we can invite our friends another time. So I didn’t invite anyone, but after that he eventually invited our mutual friends, but he didn’t tell me about it at all. He didn’t tell me until the morning, when we were getting ready for the party. Honestly I was very angry.
