Schutz School, Alexandria


I am in Cairo, after three days in Alexandria, where I was talking to children at the Schutz American school.

The school was great. I had a day with the kids before the school was forced to shut down because of swine flu. Then I spent a lot of time with the teachers.

The teachers were good to meet too. Really welcoming. Taking me out to bars, where I met these four England football fans.

I'd like to say thanks to all the teachers. And to Jane and Frank who manage the school. It was an amazing few days. Playing football in 40 degrees of heat. Richoting down the main coast road at 60 miles an hour. Literally. Three days of tours with Omar, Egypt's most promising keeper.
Now Cairo. I can see the giant pyramid from my hotel window. But, as it's dark, I'm settling down to watch England v Croatia.
