We choose this hotel because, there is not that many choice in Cairo!!! We got a room with a carpet. It is an ok hotel. Alot of renovation needed. Plus, the owner did'nt respect what was indicated on their website. If you don't buy the tour, you're not gonna get help for your train tickets or anything. The wifi was'nt working and they did not bother to fix it. It was suppose to work when we checked in but when taling to others guests, they were complaining to the owner about that even before we arrived. Two stars out of five!

Getting to the museum took us across the Nile. It was surprising to see such a wide river in the middle of sand dunes. But it was beautiful, flowing with so much history.

... booked the tour not that long ago, so will wasn't able to get us seats all together. He and Kristal were in a carriage a couple back from the rest of us, who had a mix of seats together and not. Brendan, Lathem and I all had seats next to locals, which let the girls sit together. From what I'd heard, it's usually best for there to be a guy in the aisle seat, to provide a bit of a barrier for the girl in the window seat, but considering we had twice as many girls as guys, ...
... of Sayyidna al-Hussein (women are not allowed). It is one of the most sacred in Egypt. Inside is Hussein’s mausoleum which is visited by lines of Muslims, kissing the wall, some almost sobbing. It is a holy atmosphere. Later we spoke to a man outside. He said there may not be any remains of Hussein, the revered holy man, inside at all. But one legend says his head was returned to be entombed here.
... rest of the day. ( I was really too tired to deal with more **** from some guy wanting a green card) the men here are way to forward, he asked to speak to me, so I told him I was tired and didn't need a driver and I would stay in for the rest of the day. He spoke to Peter again and asked Peter to tell me to think about it. I decided to walk to the market, where I met another guy (Muhamad) he started talking to me as I continued walking, (the men here just start walking with you, ...
