... and sunrise? And, keeping in line with third world travel, everyone expects you to have small change. I get it at the small local shop, but when your charging 80 LE for a tourist entrance fee, maybe have some extra 20 LE notes for change. The next day I prepared to head to Alexandria, a nice 2.5 hour train ride. At breakfast, one of the Egyptian hostel workers, who I hadn't met yet, asked me: "Did you just get out of your country's military?" Me: "Why would you ask that?" Him: ...

... He finally pulls out the stuff in my price range (they only have so much time until the bus is scheduled to leave) and we make a deal.

The egyptians would have known about the water level but the greeks obviously didnt. There were paintings and the egyptian gods were detailed on the walls but with a Greek feel to them so they had Greek outfits, not Egyptian. Whenever we left a site, our guide would jokingly say we had to work out ...
