Imagine, if you can, my profound joy on planning a trip to one of the world’s ancient civilization; discovering what life was like in the land of the kings and queens, the magic of mummification to the Nile and Nefertiti! Imagine also with what excitement my face glowed as we sped towards the Travelers Hotel on the cold morning of December 4th 2016. It was some minutes to 4:00 am.
As I sat in the cab catching the breathtaking sites of downtown Cairo, I left my taxi driver to rumble on his welcome greetings. I remember though that at one point he did stop and bought mango juice for my friend and I; his signature welcome symbol. On a side note, Egypt has the tastiest mango juice I’ve ever had in my life!
I will update my day trips in subsequent posts. In the meanwhile, enjoy a couple of pictures on the Great Pyramids and Sphinx of Giza.
Till the next post, I’m over and out.
