    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!

    ... out the different sights, and then we told him we were hungry and ready to eat something. He drove less than 500m and stopped and asked us how many sandwiches we wanted. We both said two. Then he walked up to a hole-in-the-wall restaurant and picked us up some falafel pitas wrapped in paper. They were excellent. We went to another store and picked up a few bottles of water, then he took us to the Bazaar. He parked across the road and gave us strict instructions to not to talk ...

    Next, we were given a culture lesson and instructed NOT to discuss Israel with parents or Egyptian staff. Very touchy subject...we were told there are certain parts of the city we should avoid right now, including the pyramids, downtown Cairo, and Alexandria. All the places I want ...

    ... lump of rock with crude hand tools and nothing to guide them but a good eye, this is craftsmanship of a rare and supreme breed. Impressive on a scale I have never before seen.

    Before it's discovery at some point in the 1800's it had been lying on it's side in water and as such one side is worn away and rough. But I like it as it is. If it was in one piece, standing tall and immaculate, it just wouldn't be the same and people wouldn't be able to get so close and appreciate it as ...

    ... flavours. Very nice but we bought none.

    As we intitially learned in India, it is always good to dine with your guide in order to learn about a people's eating habits. It might have cost us more than it would have in a regular restaurant but I got to eat the local cuisine. I also learned how to eat it... Our guide, Osama was his name, made me eat babaganoush, tahini, hummus, eggplant, kebabs, lentils and beans. I learned that the eggplant is eaten in ...

    ... in Jordan. We shared a taxi to the center of Cairo. He came to Egypt to spend the 48 hours statutory time before reentering Jordan on another 1 year visa. He has the, easily agitated, 'New Yorker" demeanor and had an attitude about the people of Jordan, they are all Bedouins, he explained as if no more needed to be said.
