Day 2 Cairo (37 images)
Our drive into downtown Cairo was an experience. We were happy to have a driver! Traffic here is worse than in Costa Rica. Traffic lanes are optional, if three lanes are marked on the roads, there’ll be four lanes of traffic with everyone constantly changing lanes while everyone blasts their horns. Mixed with all this are dozens of donkey carts just trotting along to make things even more hectic.
We visited a lovely old Christian church and saw ruins of a Roman structure.
From our hotel in Giza that evening, Collie took pictures of the light show on the Sphinx and Pyramids.
