My next flight, so close and now I'm going to another continent. Ready for a new adventure, ready for the wild and some desert. Have you guessed where I'm going yet? Egypt! Where the days are hot and the nights are cold. I'm excited even though there is only one place I'm particularly interested in visiting. Which are the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx. But as for now, landing and travelling by taxi to the accommodation which is about an hour from Cairo International after landing .

To be honest, since all I wanted to see in Egypt were those two main attractions, and as soon as I checked in at the hotel at about 19:00 at night I was exhausted. All I could think about was sleep and in fact, I wasn't even thinking straight. Although I remember being treated with absolutely great service at Husa Gawharet. The room was neatly done, and had the perfect Egyptian touch to it. Didn't feel like home, but it certainly made me comfortable.

After waking up from a well deserved rest, at around 08:00am, I decided to have a breakfast at the Husa Gawharet. The breakfast was sufficient and after that, I was ready to have a great day ahead. Day 2 was interesting, having to find a different form of transport compared to Europe where I could just use the subway. Here I guess I'd have to use taxis. The style of clothing was different too, something I wasn't particularly used to. Taking a taxi to the Pyramids of Giza, wasn't a long trip. But at the moment, it was hot, as in the humidity was just unbearable. But I carried on through the day, hoping to see the wonders of Giza. The pyramids, were a beauty! I don't have a clue as to how the Egyptians did it. But it was perfectly sculpted. The next destination in Giza was the Sphinx. The half lion half person, was interesting really. I wonder how the nose fell off since nothing else did, but the nose? Maybe they miscalculated it? But I wouldn't know, it was a sight to see. Recommend people to go and enjoy.


Day 3 and today, I just decided to walk around the neighbourhood, looking at all the shops and all before heading back to the hotel to take a well deserved rest, nothing was really planned for today, just to take a proper rest and sleep all day, to get prepared for my next adventure as the next flight was to Zimbabwe later, during the night. At about 10:00pm I had to check in the Cairo International Airport. My flight for Harare was at 11:30pm.
