... and we really could not take any more in. Our guide was truly passionate about his job and gave us lots of other information about Arabic life. We had a little break then in a the air conditioning as it is quite a hot day 34-35 degrees. We had been told that it was quite safe to walk around our area and were told where to go. We set off in the heat and took on the traffic. We did not see a pedestrian crossing so we had to cross the roads. ...

Book reflective entry

How would a revolver help the Englishman trust people? Do you feel the same? It really depends on where I would be. He was at risk of dying much more than I am right now, because of his location.

... you’re on a budget.

Yet people still hassled us, in particular a guy inside the pyramid pretended to sneakily take pictures of us with our phone, then later asked for a tip, and to keep the whole thing a secret. What a scam! Are all tourists such fools? Another one at the entrance of the tunnel asked for a tip for allowing us to go back inside.
