Pyramids

A quick iPhone update from Cairo!

We had an amazing day visiting the pyramids and tombs in Giza, Memphis, and Saqqara, and even stopped by the famous sphinx. Both are such incredible sights that cannot be reduced merely to words. The group had the opportunity to ride camels adorned in authentic Egyptian tapestries and cloths, as well as experience a demo on papyrus and the beautiful artwork that it gives way to.

I also can’t forget to mention the amazing meals today, particularly the appetizers that we’ve been indulging in – including Egyptian delicacies such as hummus, baba ganoush, and a variety of delicious vegetables and cheeses.

We aslo spent our latter half of the evening at a bar called After Eight (episode-we-lost-count-of Mary and Marwan take to the bars), which actually happens to be the oldest bar in Egypt!

Tis’ all for now. Night from Cairo!
