All eyes to the 30th

... among a people who are God fearing doesn't mix well. It only takes for the Brotherhood to paste the name of Allah over their initiatives and the people will fall in behind.

So what of support for the 30th then? Among the informed majority of Cairo and other main cities of Egypt, the ambiguity of the political climate certainly doesn’t lie with people's support of the government. Dissatisfaction and disappointment have ...

05/05/13 - Day 47 - Egypt 2 - Museum and Pyramids

... next door is the headquarters of the National Democratic Party, which was completely torched during the revolution in 2011. The museum itself was broken into, and the café and shop destroyed by the fire, but reports are contradictory as to what was damaged or stolen and how badly. It seems that many things have been recovered or can be restored, which is lucky, as these are some of the rarest antiquities in the world, and many of them are up to 4,000 years old.

Shoes, Shows, and a Showdown

... which Emily, Tim and I make small talk amongst ourselves - and I apologize repeatedly that they got more than they bargained for in coming to see a music gig – Seif and Mando return to the car and give me their blessing. The trip, having been gone over with a fine-toothed comb, has been given the green light, ON THE CONDITION I phone them twice every day, among various other precautions. It has well gone midnight when I get home from the long day. Packing, then lights ...

... with
a curt Arabic ‘I’m waiting for a friend’ makes a funny comparison to my last
arrival at this airport, and as I’m driven home, seeing that the exotic Cairene
chaos unfolding beyond the car window was not a dream, I try to look chilled but
have to restrain the 7-year-old me from bouncing up and down in my seat.
Unfortunately, in a stunt of great excitement and eagerness I manage to
misplace the key to this now ...

    Good rooms and food, but terrible service

    Pros: value, breakfast, rooms
    Cons: service, service, service

    At the end of our Africa trip, we had a long stopover in Cairo and wanted a cheap property we could relax and clean-up before a long flight home. For $100, you can't go wrong with the Novotel who offered modern and clean rooms with a great buffet breakfast and amenities like a pool and gym.

    The initial service at check-in was good - they let us check-in early and even get breakfast on our first day - but the service stopped there. My wife was rudely dismissed by numerous male staff including frontdesk trying to track down hair conditioner which wasnt provided in the room. Our dinner was also poorly served. Lastly, the airport transfer driver was 15 minute late for departure, which wasn't as big of a deal to us as we had adapted to Africa and their reading of time, but could be troublesome without such expectation.

    All and all, the poor service doesnt outweigh the positives, so I'd still recommend the property for stopovers given its modern rooms, breakfast, cost and proximity to the airport.
