... Now, I've been to Thailand before and been asked by the same man 8 times a day, as I come and go from my hotel, if I would like to buy a suit but this does not compare to the Egyptian way. I'm not sure if they've always been this way, or if they have become more desperate to make a sale in the last 3 years with the decline in tourism since the revolution in 2011, but their pushiness was pretty hard to tolerate by the end of our stay!

... to be couch surfing in Cairo, but there was some confusion at first. So my first day in Cairo I ended up hanging out with Semsem. He helped me find a hostel and walked with me around the city. I ended up getting in touch with the host from CS and we planned to meet at the pyramid. I met my new friends Basma at the pyramids on my second day.

They also believed that speaking the name of a dead person would summon that person's ...

... bitter taste in everyone's mouth, which must be spat out in order to start afresh. Banners, pamphlets, posters and graffiti cover the walls of the city with the slogan 'Revolt: 30/6'. You see it wherever you look until it becomes like a chant inside your head. This word, plastered everywhere, is of a different root to the word for revolution in Arabic, and whereas 'revolution' suggests an explosive, one-time-only event, the word being used this time ...

... Museum consists of two floors, each divided into galleries. The bottom floor contains artefacts from the Old, Middle and New Kingdoms, and the upper galleries are split into sections for papyrus, animal mummies, the Royal Mummy Collection and the treasures of Tutankhamun. Mido gave us a tour for an hour or so, covering many of the highlights of the collection, including a couple of statues that had crystals for eyes - still in place even after more than 3,000 years! Then ...
