I need a car, seriously. Its not about the walking, thats really not too much of an issue. Yes I have developed incredibly painful plantar fasciitis*, especially in my right foot, which makes my mornings excruciating and often causes me pain in the evenings, but I think walking is good and healthy.
But the time, and the effort, and the money it costs to take taxis back and forth from work is over the top.
Do any of you, my readers, know of someone in Egypt who will be putting their car into storage, or does not currently use their car, who would be open to renting the car to my husband and I on a monthly basis?
We don’t want to buy a car as our stay in Egypt (inshAllah) is not permanent and we don’t want to go through the hassle of trying to sell the car again when we leave.
It would be so appreciated if you could help us out.
* For anyone who is planning to move to Egypt you need to know that shoes here, even super expensive ones, DO NOT have arch support. At all. Zip. None. Its incredibly frustrating as I have very defined arches and need good arch and heel support. I have never suffered from PF before I moved here, and I actually had no idea what was causing me such pain until I asked my mom. Its excruciating to walk when I first get up in the morning, and if I walked a lot during the day then after sitting down for awhile, to get up again is so very painful. It really is no joke, it hurts. I feel like I’m 100 years old hobbling around and groaning in pain.
Don’t leave your good walking shoes behind with the idea that you will buy shoes for cheaper in Egypt. Yes, they’re cheaper, but so much more expensive in other ways.
