Here at peta2, we work hard, and we play hard.

For me, that means using my precious vacation time wisely, and really clearing my head for a bit.

That’s why I decided to take 2 weeks this spring, and travel to Egypt. I have always wanted to go, and with the semester wrapping up for most college students that I work with, the timing was perfect!

It’s worth noting that I don’t speak a word of Arabic (the national language), but even still, being vegan in Egypt was easier than you might think! In fact, many of the traditional dishes, such as ta’amiya (known elsewhere as “falafel”), are already animal-free!

One dish I was particularly fond of was called kushari, which is a delicious snack made up of lentils, chickpeas, macaroni, fried onions, garlic, and tomato sauce, served with warm pita bread. Scrum-diddilly-umptious!

Yes indeed, it was a thoroughly enjoyable break. Needless to say though, even when I’m half-way around the world, I’m still not a douche. :)

    Hi Dorothy Joy!
    Vegetarian food is very common in Egypt, though it may not be labeled as such. :)
    Some of the great dishes to look out for include lentil soup, ta’amiya (falafel), hummus and pita bread, kushari, and fuul.
    Also, make sure to enjoy some fresh-squeezed mango juice, which can be found on every street corner.
    Have fun!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
