Was this in Cairo as well? Trianon was just a little danish bakery last time I checked??

It ain't that little here in Egypt. It's one of the best coffee house and bakery chains in town. I think it was originally started by an Egyptian in Alexandria, and the chain in Copenhagen came some time later. I am not really sure about this info, but that's what I heard from Alexandrian old timers.

You're wrong. ;) Trianon is originally a danish bakery started in Copenhagen. The concept was purchased to egypt.

One of my mates have been hired for a one year periode in their bakery headquaters, which is in Giza at the Royal Gardens Hotel.

The comment is not to be a smartass, just the provide some facts. :)

All the best. Nicolai / Dennmark

Hallo again.

Read some parts of your blog. Nice to read that you're fun of Denmark. ;)

As a dane i'm curious. Why is Denmark interesting for a foreigner? Could you comment it?

I can see that you're in the refrigeration business - and are attending a lot of courses in denmark. Is it Danfoss, who is hosting them?

Just curios. :) Im on the other hand very interested in your country. I have been there twice. One thing we foreigner cant take away from you guys. You have got culture!! :D

Cheers, Nicolai

I was born and raised in an environment where Danes were involved all the time. I grew up admiring Danes, Denmark
and most importantly Danfoss.

You are right about the business, and the courses. I believe that you can easily see them from the pictures.

Please let me know what have you been doing in Egypt. Business, or tourism?

An environment of Danes in Egypt. Or do you have relatives in Denmark?

Regarding my love for Egypt:

Unfortunately it has just been on vacation. I went to visit my mate, when he was there in 2001/2002. Got to see the sights and were in luxor twice.

Damn! It was very interesting! Love your culture! :)

Furthermore I got to see the bakery of Trianon and their stores at Mohandessin and the Arkadia. Fun to see a Danish bakery in Egypt. ;) Also nice to read on your web, that Trianon is a success in Egypt. When my mate were there, it was just getting started. They were struggling...

Actual i tried to get a job in cairo. But the company was not ready to employ foreigner. It was at Audi/VW. I could have been a fun time. :P
