Cairo, Egypt Taxi Ride

When we arrived at our vacation rental in Cairo, Egypt in 2016, the pillows were nasty. They were caked with stains and different colors of bodily fluids left from...whatever activities they'd been involved in before we got there. So, one of the first things we did the day after we got to the rental, was go get new pillows. In this video, we're riding in the taxi back to the rental from a large department ...

Cairo, Egypt: View from the Vacation Rental Window

Cairo is not the prettiest city in the world, but we still enjoyed the view from our 14th floor apartment where we lived for 2 months in 2016. Cairo is polluted and the buildings are all barren concrete. There's little decorative lighting in the city and for most part, no attempt is made to make things "beautiful". But the sunsets are nice. And with a good view there can be some good people-watching on the ...

Seeing the Egyptian Museum without having to navigate through throngs of tourists was nice. We visited in 2015 when tourism was down, but there was still a line waiting when we got there in the morning on the day of our visit.Related Posts:The White Desert, Egypt: Photo GalleryLydian's Belly Dance Classes in Cairo, Egypt 2015: Photo GalleryNazlet Al Sammam Near Cairo, Egypt: Photo ...

Cairo, Egypt – The Pyramids Inside and Out: Photo Gallery

We visited Cairo, Egypt for the first time in January 2015. We stayed in a town just outside of Cairo called Nazlet a-Sammam where we were able to see the Pyramids from the window of our vacation rental. During our week long trip, we saw the Pyramids both from afar in the desert after a camel ride, and also from the inside.Related Posts:Egypt Tourism: Sandstorm at the Pyramids in Egypt ...

The Egyptian Museum sans the Tourist Hordes — By Jennifer Shipp

Today we visited the Egyptian Museum. I better understand now the people’s sentiments about the displays. It’s true that very few of the items in the huge warehouse-of-a-building are marked, but for me, that didn’t diminish the coolness factor of the place. In fact, the lack of descriptions left more to the imagination as we slowly walked through the huge collection of Egyptian “stuff”.
