A second day of pyramids. Lovely. Very lovely. The sites are small, but TT is ready to move on. I guess they all start to look the same to an 8-year old.
Driving in Cairo, I could take it or leave it. It's enough to make anyone car sick. It's partly the fumes, partly the weaving in and out of traffic, partly the jet lag. Good thing …
Please don't ever attempt to cross the streets of Cairo unless you are an adrenaline junkie.
