We were picked up on the morning of the 7th by our driver and met up with our guide/Egyptologist who turned out to be absolutely fabulous, giving us a great overview of the history of Egypt and also protecting us from the tourist traps over the past two days in Cairo.

We finally arrived at the hotel and were met by our tour guide who informed us that there was us and one other person on our whole tour... Not what we imagined. He also told us that he hadn't been working for four months because there were no tourists coming to Egypt anymore… Very sad. It was at this point that I ...
