Presents from England?
Score! A friend living in England is going to visit Egypt next month, and has offered to bring me anything that I wanted. My first thought: shaving soap!
My friend is currently an impoverished grad student, and she's insisting on bringing something as a gift for me, rather than taking reimbursement. Knowing how thin her finances are nowadays, it would be irresponsible to ask for anything gratis more than about 10 pounds' worth. As I gather, though, a good cake of shaving soap can be had for less than that. What would you all recommend I ask her to bring, if she can only afford one kind of soap on her budget? I've never used hard shaving soap before, so they're all new to me. I'm open to suggestions about both brand and variety.
