Learn how to ask common questions in Egyptian Arabic
The next day, Karim and Lisa meet at a fast food restaurant that is located in the Abu Hagag Square. They order burgers and soft drinks. While they are eating and chatting, they watch some tourists with their tour guide visiting Luxor Temple. Most of the tourist wear big hats or sunglasses to protect themselves from the sun. After they have finished eating, they go to the bookstore that is beside this fast food restaurant. They look through different books and magazines. Lisa seems to be unhappy, and the shop owner asks her, “Enti betdauari 3ala eh?“!
Lisa thinks for a moment and then tells her that she is looking for books about Egyptian cinema in the ‘80s and ‘90s. The shop owner is very surprised and isn’t sure if she understood what Lisa wants. “Enti mot’akeda?”
Lisa nods and tells her that as a kid she used to live in Egypt with her family. The shop owner apologizes and tells her to try her luck somewhere else. Karim offers to help Lisa find info and videos about the Egyptian cinema from the ‘80s and ‘90s on the Internet.
