An Evening With Omar

For those who have been taken by Ishraq's dancing, you're, well....  in good company.

Richard and Ishraq have a vacation house in El Gouna, an Egyptian resort on the Red Sea.    (If you'd like to have a look at it, click here).  

They rent the second floor to Tarek Sharif, with whom they've become friends.  The two families went for a weekend together in Deauville, where Tarek's father Omar came up from Paris to join them.   Omar took them to dinner at a restaurant that featured belly-dancing, audience participation encouraged.   Ishraq was persuaded to dance (of course).   Omar - an aficionado of the art - declared her to be in grace and skill second only the top star of Egypt.   It is of course my opinion that he wasn't exaggerating a bit!
