October 28, 2009 - Cairo, Egypt

 We're currently in our hotel in Cairo waiting till we get the overnight train to Aswan. We've had a great time so far. I didn't really have high expectations of Cairo but it's actually really nice especially Islamic Cairo. The people are really friendly here and surprisingly you don't get hassled too much, however, the traffic is a nightmare! Today we went to the Pyramids of Giza which are superb. It's difficult to comprehend how they built them! The Sphinx is impressive, you can get a great photo of the Sphinx in the foreground and the pyramid in the background. This afternoon we went to the Egyptian Museum. As you know I'm not a huge fan of museums but I was impressed by the Tutankhamun collection. I've also learnt a valuable lesson today not to buy drinks in touristy places, I think the can of coke must have been plated in gold!
