    ... cab ride in the ridiculous Cairo traffic, where 2 lanes actually means that you can fit 3 cars across, we made it close enough to our hotel. We told driver to stop after he passed it and we walked another 5 minutes to the hotel. We checked into our room, noticed that our bags made it, but they gave us only one towel to share, so we decided together we would go down to reception to collect another towel.

    Finally, I have reached Egypt. I saw Pyramids. It is huge! I do not know how people could create something like that. It is something that everyone should see at least once in there life! However, it is so dangerous in there. I was punched by few men that were in search for money, but I did not have anything to give them. When I felt down on the ground i saw a mirage and I understood!
