A Breathtaking Country


Sphinx and Great Pyramids

Hibiscus at the Cairo Souk

Pinch me, because I still can't believe I was just in Egypt. It was everything I imagined and so much more. I learned a lot, took 18 GB of photos, and visited places I never imagined I would. And I got a nice tan, just to top it all off.

If you find yourself planning a vacation, do yourself a favor and look into visiting Egypt. You will visit ancient civilizations, stand in awe of those who basically invented modern architecture and graphic design, and you will have an amazing time with the Egyptian people who might be the happiest, friendliest and funnest people I have ever met. Oh, and these are just 3 of the 5 GB of photos I took on the first day alone. (the third image is of dried Hibiscus, used to make tea and cold drinks - like Jamaica in Mexico. Its like the national drink of Egypt and is sooooo tasty)
