          I normally live in my flat in Cairo in Mohandaseen , or stay with freinds. This time travelling with my family I decided to try out another hotel in Cairo. The room we had 910 was perfect for my couin, uncle and my self. With a set of stairs separating us we had our own space, a great balcony view of the Nile, Fridge, Free internet, two televisions. Breakfast choice was fantastic, Front office staff were very helpful and delightful. I asked for help ordering Koshery for my family who had not yet tried it. Asked for a late check out so my elderly uncle could rest before his flight home. Rooms are spotless, bathrooms big. Location is amazing with a Metro grocery store open for water, juice and things we needed. Close to great restaurants, the Nile in one of my favourite places in Cairo, the Island of Zamalek. Only two things that ruined the perfect experience.
          1. The woman who works at the restaurant are rude, unfreindly, impolite.. irritated and never seem to smile. When you asked for something the high pitched respons was WAIT. Instead of I will get that for you in just a minute. Instead of would you like coffee or tea. It is What you want. Irritating.
          2. On April 25 I had an early morning train to catch to Alexandria. I looked for a taxi but not wanting to be late I asked if it would be possible to pull a taxi up while I got my elderly uncle. Instead of telling me before hand that the taxi would cost me 3 times more. Since I have lived in Cairo I know what taxi cost. Intead of the 5-7 Egyptian pound which I should have paid. I paid 35 Egyptian pound for a short ride. Neither the door man nor the receiptionist told me that the cost would be three times more, then the door man still expected a tip for deceiving me. That was annoying. Its too bad because after a great experience it left me with a bad taste and mistrust. If they had been up front when I asked on the phone it would not have been a problem but 1 minute before I left was to be deceiving and dishonest.

          Saqqara: what a Pyramid should look like (inside)!

          ... in these circumstances. Hmmm

          We then visited the Colonnade, some of the smaller tombs, the pyramid of Unas, the tomb of Ti, the causeway as well as some others.

          It's so funny: virtually all the pyramids say "No photos" but all this means is that you need to pay someone 10-50LE (about AUD2-10) to let him guide you around & allow you to break the rules.

          We then continued on to Darshur to see a couple more pyramids & ...

          Hit the ground running!

          We made it and we haven't stopped! Our flight was long but we managed to sleep a little bit in between meals. Enjoyed watching a great movie; The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. If you haven't seen it, watch it! We were greeted by some amazing CISE staff who were particularly perky at 5:30 in the morning Cairo time. They promptly escorted us to the duty free. I knew wine purchasing was in order ...

          ... This is one place that should be tidied up as the effects could be catastrophic – get it together people FOD is an issue.

          A long bus ride into Cairo and the traffic is chaotic. Lots of breakdowns on the side of the road, people stopped in running lanes for a chat to someone else, nose to tail collisions across 5 lanes of traffic in both directions. A combination of New Jersey Barriers and Armco delineate the freeway system with flyovers and mergers that ...

His little boy who was about 3/4 when I was there last time is now at school. He is still just as cheeky. Omar started talking to us about the Nubian lifestyle and weddings. He had 5000 people at his wedding, we decided ours probably won't be that big! The dinner we had was again really good and he offered us some "proper" Sheesha (a molasses tobacco ...

          ... Which is unheard of, once tourism picks up again you may wait several hours just to get a look at some of these sites. So get yourself there!

          And once you start to plan your trip, I’d highly recommend seeing the country with On The Go tours. This is one of the countries where you do really want to go with an organized tour – in relation to the west, you’re dealing with a completely foreign language and culture, and in a third world country, so having ...
