We met the guide at 9am for our first day of sight seeing. Rad has a degree in Egyptology. We drove to Memphis. To see the limestone statue of Ramese 2nd. Tip- when bargaining it is usually half the price they gave you. Get change first before you hand over the money. Off to Sakkara where the first stone pyramid was built and this is the first stone structure of the world. We visited a Carpet ...

... He arrived, but NONE of his luggage - bike box and bags - arrived with him and not found out where it is as yet. Sat looking extremely fed up in reception when I went to go and meet my friendly taxi driver. David decided to come with me so we could carry on after the phone shop to the Nilometer. This took some working out with the taxi driver as he (along with most other people) have never heard of the Nileometer. Both David and I had heard about ...

... also they sell a cd to raise money to help finance the museum. I could have spent days roaming the halls of this museum but alas there is so much on our agenda. Definitely a place I wish to revisit. They are currently constructing a new museum building closer to the Giza Pyramids which will be more modern and bigger to better house the collections.
We also took a walk through the old Cairo bazaar but aside from the delicious sugar cane juice I ...
