    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.

    ... museum still bears the scars of the fire it suffered then. The entrance to the museum is fortified with triple concertina wire (aka nasty barbed wire), directly behind which sits a bunch of tanks. Specifically a company of m113 armored personal carriers, and another company of riot police. To the non military geek, a company of tanks = ~15 tanks, a company of troops = ~100 soldiers. Each tank has an Egyptian flag painted on its front, for what purpose ...

    I left Portland very early Saturday morning and flew to New York. Got some great pictures coming into the city. I was not supposed to get the window seat; ticketed to sit smack dab in the center. The people on either side of me were together, a father taking his daughter to New York to go to college. They were more than willing to let me have their window so they could sit together. I was able to get pictures of the Rocky Mountains, some Michigan Lakes, and New ...
