... A guy was riding his donkey when the ground gave way beneath him. The Catacombs were uncovered and he fell around 10m to his death. Poor guy didn't even get a chance to be excited about his discovery! When found, the lowest of the 3 levels was completely submerged by water and mummies and coffins were floating around. On the 2nd level there is a banquet hall where friends and relatives of the deceased would come to feast and spend time with loved ones passed. Next ...

... been a long seven months but when anyone says that to us we put a guard up.

Alexandria was nearly a three hour drive from Cairo. Due to the early start we didn’t have breakfast and we were told by our hotel that we would get a packed lunch. However since that didn’t happen we asked Hosny about breakfast. He stopped over by the side of the road and got us a couple of Twinkies & a raisin bar. Not exactly the healthiest of breakfasts but ...

... along the street, in the median, and in adjacent lots as well (including piles of tires and scrap lumber). It was one of the worst sights I’ve seen in any Third World country. Mohamed got on the microphone and told us how embarrassed he was of this sight, noting that things were nowhere near this bad in the city before the Arab Spring revolution that begin in January 2011.
