We left our hotel in the morning, after not eating fresh fruit for breakfast or drinking the water. We could only drink bottled water the whole time, and we couldn’t eat the fresh fruit or vegetables either because they had been infected by the bad water. If we did drink the water, even with just brushing our teeth, then diarrhea would be very likely. Diarrhea did indeed occur.
This picture barely shows what driving was like in Cairo. It was insano. In no way do they obey traffic laws and they just drive wherever they can squeeze in. They turn two lane roads into four. The drivers are actually quite talented.
Here’s the standard housing in Cairo that is allll over. It doesn’t look like the best, and we say way worse housing than this.
There were so many sweet vans. Many of them were taxis and they shove so many people into those taxi vans and bus type things. Crazy daisy man.
This thing was huge, and so incredible edible egg. How did they build them? And it was thousands of years ago.
Me and my roomies, being ancient Egyptians at the ancient Egyptian pyramids. There are these main three on the Giza plateau but a lot of other pyramids in other places around Egypt.
The earlier tombs were called mastabas, and they were just regular structures. But the pyramids came about by placing mastabas on top of mastabas, creating step pyramids and the first pyramids.
This dude was rocking it on the camel, and I couldn’t not take a picture. I love camels. I love them. They’re the most awkward looking animals in the world.
We had quite a jam packed, adventurous day in Cairo. And to top that off, that night, we got on a plane and flew to Luxor. This trip is long and busy and cooooool beans. I went to the pyramids today!
