Pyramids Of Giza
I already posted pictures from Rome, now here are pictures taken in Cairo, Egypt. Egypt is one of those places every one wants to go to at least once in life. You see images of the, “Great Pyramids Of Giza,” and “The Great Sphinx,” everywhere and want to see them in person one day. Last week Monday I finally got a chance to see them in person and travel around Cairo.
The day before going to Cairo I saw a newspaper saying tanks were back in Tahir Sqaure. Tahir Square is where all the protests take place and also where the Egyptian museum is located. While I have heard various stories about the dangers of Cairo, I decided to take a chance and get a glimpse of some history. So I flew from Dubai to Egypt, which are opposites in a lot of ways. In Dubai you see people driving around in a Rolls Royce while in Cairo I saw people riding horses. Dubai had people from various countries while where I was at in Cairo was mainly people from Egypt it appears. In Cairo, for the first time I entered a hotel where you have to get your car checked and go through a metal detector before you enter. While Cairo is in Africa, it appears to be a middle eastern city and I didn’t see an abundance of black people. Keep in mind I was only in Cairo for 24 hours.
