      We quite enjoyed our stay... the building has seen better days, like 50 years ago, but that is what Cairo is all about. The rooms were comfy and clean enough, the terrace breakfast is delightful, and the service was good humoured. The only thing I can't understand is why, with 2 or 3 men hanging around the desk all day, could no one get off their butt and pick up the cigarette butts and tissues lying on the staircase for the three days we stayed. I finally did it myself.

      The Zamalek location itself is a plus, and the grand marble entrance to the building is impressive. The staff is reasonably accommodating. The beds sagged so much that I had to stuff a pillow under me for back support. The mosquitos bombarded me nonstop even though it was December. And the hot water didn't come through one very cold morning. Keep your expectations low when it comes to breakfast. All in all, it's what it is for the price.

      ... and our skilled pilot was able to dip the balloon with precision close to the valley walls and almost touching trees below! It was pretty amazing and even better since it was both of our first times in a hot air balloon. After about an hour in the sky we finally landed and had the opportunity to visit the underground city about 100km away. We didn't quite know what it was all about but when we started descending down below the surface it pretty wild. These caves served as ...

      ... through the city via loudspeakers, but back in the day the call was also made by voice from the minaret attached to each mosque. According to Islamic Learning Materials (http://islamiclearningmaterials.com/is lamic-call-to-prayer/), there was discussion as to the method of calling people to pray. Several alternatives were suggested, like a bell, or a trumpet, or a flag, but the prophet Muhammed rejected the ideas; preferring the calming vocal intonations that ...

      We had a quick shower, packed everything and checked out. We spent a bit of time on the internet and then Hanny met us at 6:00 to take us to the Giza Sound and Light Show. Traffic was crazy as always, but we arrived with plenty of time to spare.

      We ran into Pepito again, he was a the Swiss travel agent from our cruiser. We also ran into him at Abu Simbel. When there are so few tourists, I guess ...

      ... up well, you can take it as a compliment of the highest kind, coming from me.

      You'd never think something that tranquil can exist in Cairo but there it is. Aside from heading out in the evening for my daily dish of Koshary costing a massive 5 Pounds (about 50 pence in English money), this was to be my last venture out before leaving and I can honestly say I chose wisely.

      On the subject of safety I never felt even mildly threatened by anyone or anything at any point in ...
