    Hugo liked Alex first. When I first heard someone refer to it as "Alex", I was like, "really?". But then everyone in Egypt refers to it as Alex - foreigners and Egyptians alike, so I gave in after a day or two. So, Hugo was the early adopter. I didn't really see the charm - neither did Lisa. The first day was a bit of a loss as we arrived fairly …

    ... original lighthouse survived until the 14c but was damaged badly a number of times by earthquake. Eventually a fort was erected on the ruins. Original stones have been found in the harbour and some have been used in the fort foundations. The fort looks as though it has been rebuilt recently.

    ... well preserved, with some mosaic flooring remaining, but a second side has been built recently so it can be used for theatrical presentations. This side blends well with the ancient section. The least interesting part of the tour was the Alexandria National Museum. It was located in the former US embassy and housed some artifacts from different times in Egyptian history. After a quick look around I had an interesting conversation with ...

    ... kick backs. We decided on kofta which is their own style of boerewors - its pretty good and at least you know its been cooked so is pretty much water free!

    So there was the old Alexandria library but it is no longer, so foreign investors helped and they built a huge library which is opposite the university, for the students and people of Alexandria. It was so busy when we drove past, all the students queuing to get in. We were stuck in traffic getting there due to ...
