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!

Next morning...we have been taken to Alexandria this morning (it is a 4+ hr journey) and have been delivered to a magnificent hotel on the Mediterranean Coast in what is called the Gold Coast. The trip up was a change from the desert that surrounds Cairo and extends South. As you go north it becomes greener ...
... and the the temples are inside. It was definitely worth the 4 hour drive. Originally I was thinking of taking a trip through the Sahara, see the desert and hit some oases. I was on the fence, as I've had some experiences driving through the desert. The ride back through Abu Simbel made up my mind, after driving for hours and seeing a vast expanse of desert. I was skipping that part of the trip. If my biggest rest in life is looking back and wishing I spent several days ...
... it wasn't empty either. I'd say 85 - 90% capacity; mostly Middle Eastern families.
Once in Egypt, we were met by a representative from the school and he whooshed us through customs and security. Even so, the lady with the visas barely looked at my passport and ignored my customs sheet. Nobody's bags were inspected. We then loaded 3 trolleys and rolled out to the school's bus. There, all the suitcases were loaded up and we started on our way to discovering Egypt
... were 32 pharaohs during this 600 year period.
The statue of King Akhenaten and his family first time a pharaoh was shown naturally. This realistic portrayal also shows the genetic abnormality of large lips and heads. King Akhenaten founded the oldest documented monotheistic religion and move the capital from Luxor with 50,000 followers of the new religion. Nefertiti was his wife. It is believed that she was not Egyptian because ...
