Clean and friendly staff, room was clean, but toilet and shower were both not working very well. No free Internet in the rooms, sporadic Internet in the lobby...beware of Camel rides in the evening, by the pool. Helpful staff though...lastly terrible breakfast buffet...mainly breads and some hot food.

Our first stop today was the Alabaster Mosque (1365 AD), which sits within the Citadel of Saladin (1183 AD). The citadel was built ...
... luck for bringing rains with me. I was dropped back to my hotel where I said goodbye to Mamdou. I had 2 hours to relax for a while before being picked up for the light and sound show at the pyramids. Thankfully Mamdou had warned me that it would be cold and to dress warm. So beanie and jacket in tow, we set off for my final tour of the trip. When I arrived I was glad I had rugged up. It was FREEZING! The sound part of the show was a commentary on the building of the ...
