    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.

    We entered the Funerary Temple with Omar. The 40 columns inside resemble a bundle of papyrus or palm are still largely intact, but the stone roof has been destroyed.

    ... persistent trying to sell you things, throwing comments and compliments ( for Bridge I could get 5000 camels and 3 chickens) in every direction. I had to refuse the offer as Bridge was worth at least 10000 camels! They were kind hearted but very persistent and it seemed to be a family affair with children as young as 2 working the tourists over. Even the security guards would try and make money by offering to take a photo of you or let you take a photo of them and then ask ...

    Occasionally children would throw small stones
    at me when passing villages. I would see them charging from their homes ahead
    and gather their weapons as I approached. But it didn’t bother me, life is
    tougher there, they throw stones at each other.

    One night I slept in a police cell and was
    feasted on by huge ants, my arms were dotted with over a hundred incredible
    itchy bites. I ...

    Friday 2nd Nov: After the mad rush to get to NY after Hurricane Sandy, then to the airport, we finally can relax as we fly across the Atlantic to Frankfurt and then onto Cairo - 7 hours & 4 hours hops. It is a balmy evening when we emerge from the airport, such a contrast to New York. The rep from Viking Cruises waits for us while we buy our Egyptian visas for $15, then together with another couple of our group, we make our way by mini van to the Sofitel al Gezirah, ...
