... you a service you give them baksheesh. Whether the service was good or bad: baksheesh. Whether you asked for them to provide the service or not: baksheesh. Even if you've already paid for the service: baksheesh. It got irritating by the end! When we hired the horse and cart to get to the temple, you pay the fee for the trip but then when you get there: baksheesh. When you are heading back to your car after you visit a temple or pyramid, a guy pops out of no where and opens ...

Egyptian Pirates!

... at 250 Egyptian Pounds though, which was waaaaay too much, so eventually they threw us up another towel, with the pyramids and camels on them, which they said was smaller and cheaper. We got them down to 60 pounds (~$9) and then Darren got ready to throw the other items back to their boat. They started yelling, telling him not to do it, as it might go in the water, but Ramzy said its ok to throw it back, so Darren put our money into one of the bags and threw them onto ...

On the drive to the hostel, the man (whose name is Hosny) was ...

Early morning start to avoid the heat. Caught a small ferry across the River before jumping on a small bus to visit the Valley of the Kings, Temple of the (naughty) Queen Hatshepsut and
the Colossi of Memnon. Seems the Queen enjoyed power, so she locked up her son
in law (who became pharaoh at the age of 12) along with her daughter and ruled
in his name for 21 years.

Group travel had the down side of feeling more touristy / like sheep but the up side was ...

... Egypt from the images upon entering a tomb to the final resting place; It was a story of how the king/queen made it from death to the afterlife. The attention to detail was amazing, seeing all these tiny symbols and drawings that had been carved into rock thousands of years ago and were still in such great condition. We have all seen these things in books and learnt about them at school but it was so amazing to see it first hand and realising how much time, effort and planning ...
