The last wonder of the world – the pyramids, not me.
Photos of my trip to Egypt.
We stayed at the Oasis hotel in Giza – just a few miles from the pyramids. It had a great Italian restaurant up a mountain of stairs.
Our tour guide, Tarik, from Green Valley Tours, was exceedingly knowledgeable and took us to many ancient sites as well as the museum in Cairo and the Suez canal.
Here I am chilling out with my Bedouin brothers.
Here’s a picture of me and a camel. I’m the one in the hat.
The night show at the pyramids was narrated by Richard Burton and was really well done.
I was surprised to see Egyptians playing the bagpipes.
I’m smoking sisha from a hookah in the Khan. Kids, don’t try this at home.
We’re right outside Khan el-Khalili, the largest market in Cairo. It was built in 1382 by the Emir Djaharks el-Khalili in Fatimid City. Perhaps, this vary market was involved in the spice monopoly controlled by the Mamluks, which encouraged the Europeans to search for new routes to the East and led Columbus, indirectly, to discover the Americas.
What trip to Egypt would be complete without a cruise on the Nile and entertainment by these dancers?
This guy must have been spinning in place for 15 minutes.
