And that's just the pyramids. A couple of days out on the desert plateaux checking out the pyramids. Built 4500 years ago and still standing, well mostly, although the oldest at Saqqara has a lot of timber scaffolding and is closed to visitors...not that I was going to go in it.

As we drove he explained a couple of things with Cairo, which were so amazing. I had no idea the city was as big as it was, and it is so rich in history. I checked into my hotel, and there are very few things that don't surprise me anymore. However my room was on the 16th ...
