Travel Blogs from Cairo

The Pyramids and the Citadel

A travel blog entry by soulcollector

Compared to the donkey carts and junkyard jalopies plying the roads, flying Egypt Air in a brand new Airbus jet was a surreal experience. It's the same in so many third world countries - you throw yourself and your luggage into a taxi, entrusting your life to a homicidal driver in a heaving ashtray on wheels, and miraculously survive the harrowing …

Destination; Cairo

A travel blog entry by winegalcj

On January 25, 2011, a new revolution erupted in Cairo, spurred and seeded by the desperate actions of a Tunisian man a few months before. The Tunisian autocracy, with tail between its legs, up and ran after one poor fruit seller incinerated himself and with that a wave of protest broke out across the Arab world. Egyptians took up the cause and …

December 16, 17 18 in Cairo. Adventures and Misadventures

We have just returned home to Amman, two days early after some great adventures and some pretty major misadventures in Cairo… and notice I say Cairo, not Luxor as originally planned.

We set off from Amman in the afternoon of Thursday, with a comfortable drive to the …

Egypt,land of the pharoes, krupnicks and smiths

Well, we are now in Egypt and have met with our great friends and former neighbors the Smiths (red, annie, and Isabelle). I am sure this will be an adventure. Red is acting as our reluctant tour guide. Mind you they are staying at the 5star Marriot and we are at the 2 star Mayfair, there may be some underlying jealousy. Red speaks arabic and …

2nd full day in Cairo

A travel blog entry by rayl

I don't want to spend too much at this internet cafe, so I'm going to limit myself to writing about one of the tourist attractions I've visited. The Egyptian Museum, where I went during my first morning in Cairo, lived up to expectations. I spent a solid three hours there and still wasn't able to cover most of the exhibits. Museum guides were …

    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.
