Yesterday was our first full day here and we spent it with a wonderful guide that was arranged by an Intel friend who is one of the engineers in Cairo, Intel. The trip to the pyramids was more breathtaking that I imagined. They are so big and so old and so spectacular. I think if nothing else happens, our day yesterday was worth the time it took to get here. The Sphinx is also spectacular. I hope you share my enthusiasm when you see the pictures. Our time at the Egyptian Museum was wonderful as well. We spent quite a bit of time in the Mummy room as Karen and I had been studying Egyptology for months prior to our trip. It was fun to share and learn further with our guide, and to see the actual mummies of Ramses The Great, and many, many others.
We were all extremely tired and had jet lag, so we decided a nap was a requirement. After a few hours, Bob and I had a wonderful American Meal at The Hard Rock Cafe. They weren't serving alcohol since it was Ramadan, but the cheeseburger and fries was wonderful! Our friend Karen slept her night away so I'm sure she will be hungry when she wakes up!!
Tomorrow is our last day in Cairo. We hope to do some much needed shoppiung and spend quality time by the pool.
