…..from staff smoking in the Cairo airport (I felt like I was in a Quentin Tarantino movie!!! I wanted to take a picture but was afraid I’d be arrested!!) to quick talkers who recognise eager excited tourists (those who know me KNOW my level of enthusiasm!!) who didn’t get very far with us, to seeing the pictures of Egypt from National Geographic come to life right before my eyes………….
As we drove through Cairo, I cried with heavy emotion …because my childhood dream of visiting Egypt is happening. I’m in Giza, Egypt…RIGHT NOW…..on December 20th!!! Christmas music is playing in the hotel lobby (free WIFI!!) and my heart is SOARING!!!!! I’M IN EGYPT!!!!!
Here are pictures of our arrival in Cairo and the sights during our INSANE taxi drive from the airport to our hotel!!!
Love, Stephanie xoxo
