Travel Blogs from Cairo
... All along the banks of the Nile when you come close to a town you can see all the boats lined up abandoned. It's a bit sad to see. At the loch we got the experience of dealing with the venders in boats. They throw up scarfs and all sorts of things onto the boat so you can look at them. If you don't want it you throw it back and try not to have it land in the water.

... forceful. Mike also bought a head dress while we there - it was made in china and says so. Good thing I kept him from buying the coins too. We then drove over to the step pyramid which is undergoing renovation and has been for the past ten years. The shoring all over it ruined the view.
