I arrived to Cairo very late into the night to the bustling of heavy, noisy traffic. VERY NOISY TRAFFIC. VERY VERY LOUD, INSANE, ANNOYING, CANNOT SLEEP NOISY TRAFFIC. I HAVE JET LAG AND HAVE BEEN TRAVELING FOR HOW MANY HOURS AND I JUST WANT A GOOD NIGHT'S REST. IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK? HONESTLY, THESE PEOPLE USE THEIR CAR HORNS AS OFTEN AS THEY TAKE A BREATH. IS YOUR HAND GLUED TO THE ...

We built a fair amount of time into our schedule to move between countries. So the day was pretty uneventful until the boys got sick. We got to play some new cards games in Eqypt with our hosts while waiting to go to the airport, so that was a fun experience. We had brought cards along but this was the first chance we had to play any. Gracious as always, Mahmoud got us to the airport along with our driver who I tipped for getting ...

It seemed the locals were receiving the same thing we had ordered? But perhaps we were wrong. Half an hour later we were still waiting, with no one else in the shop and being ignored. Hmmm we cracked it and I told them off for treating their tourists this way. I can be very patient when I need to ...

Egypt.

... home, despite their modesty views for woman. It was a bit sad to find out that the middle east is more accepting that home. We got back into Cairo at about 7:30pm and picked up Ahmed who took us out to a popular Khoshery restaurant for dinner. After we ended up walking back to the hotel from the restaurant, which took us a good half hour but it was nice after being stuck on a bus for so long. We said goodbye to Allen once we were back at the hotel as he would not be joining us for ...
