Thank Allah this is one of our last stops, I was close to jumping into the Nile with rocks tied to my ankles. Ali is driving me nuts as he has been, and Waymon as well. Good thing Alexandria is one of my favorite sites, I would've driven myself off a sand dune with the camel. Maybe without the camel, as it did no harm. This city is incredible in every aspect.

It was a great way to finish off our day as we knew would have to be up early for our tour tomorrow.
... to sit in, so the time passed quickly. The lunch wasn't too inspiring, but we didn't starve, and the views of Cairo were interesting. The cool breeze on the water was an added benefit. On the way to our last stop at the Papyrus Institute we passed the square where the protests were held. It was quite peaceful now. At the Papyrus Institute we saw the traditional way of making papyrus. There was an opportunity to buy paintings on papyrus, but we didn't ...
