This batch of 40+ photos from my second day of the trip consists of one album that jumps around a bit. Be sure to look back at the third week of April to see the original comments about the trip, I’ll try not to repeat myself too much.

  • Everything in Cairo seemed far away so we got to see lots of the town as we drove around: the homes (with laundry drying on the ledge and satellite dishes galore) and the awful traffic.
  • We also travel to the museum in Cairo which while it had wonderful artifacts was dusty, dirty and in need a major repair (I believe they are currently building a new one). In the museum no photos were allowed but outside was okay so I took a few of the outside and of Marilyn + Thelma (who were on our trip) and Asmaa (whom I met and chatted with at the museum).
  • Some more photos from around town as we traveled around and other odd places. Some sheep under the overpass, a few shots at the mall, a view of the pyramids as the sun sets and some kids with their camel and then back to the hotel for the night.
  • Remember: In any of the photos, if it’s water, it’s probably the Nile.

    So we went on a camel ride yesterday!

    We rode them up a dune (15 minutes) and then back down across the Sahara desert (and hour?) to a village where we had a tour.
    It wasn’t as hard as I thought it’d be!

    So I forgot what people said it was going to be like here:

  • People trying to get you to buy things.
  • Trying to take you to the pyramids or a camel ride.
  • Trying to be your taxi
  • The incessant honking on the roads (there are so many honks you don’t know who it’s aimed at).

    When I say “what people said”, I mean people and books and web sites and TV shows and the tour guide.
