Citadel of Salah Al-Din

I had heard about this place but had put off going there, no real reason I thought it was just another bunch of Mosques, but there is a military museum there, so it seemed an idea to see what it had to offer, plus there was this Mohammed Ali Mosque there

We set off in a taxi and braved the Cairo traffic once again

I can't understand why there aren’t more accidents and pranged cars, ...

Pyramids, Sphinx and Egyptian Museum

A travel blog entry by a.baker.abroad on Oct 07, 2015

... to venture inside for a look. Unfortunately no cameras are allowed so no photos from inside. We then made our way back to the second pyramid for a look before heading down to the Sphinx.

Had half an hour to kill before our allotted time to meet the two taxi drivers so went to the loo - costs 3 European Pound each but as long as they have change is a good way to get hold of some small denomination notes and coins - from the bank and ATM you get 100 Egyptian Pound ...

... must have been so good at their job as some of the mummies were from as early as 1279 B.C and still had hair. I have to say it was a bit creepy as they really did still look like people. The most impressive one for me was King Ramesses the 2nd he looked really good for being dead for over 3000 years.
