A local friend made the reservation for me. It was fine as far as service and cleanliness. I just would've prefered staying in different location. It is really in middle of nowhere.

They were kind hearted but very persistent and it seemed to be a family affair with children as young as 2 working the tourists over. Even the security guards would try and make money by offering to take a photo of you or let you take a photo of them and then ask ...
... straight for me - the wrong way down the highway, forcing me to swerve out into the road packed with traffic to avoid death. At the next teahouse I put Allan on the roof of a mini bus; at that moment it was an easy decision to make.
I stayed in Cairo for two and a half weeks
where my long suffering hosts James and Claire, took me in like part of the family.
I spent my time relaxing in their cozy home, drinking with ...
