It was already evening, when we reached Aswan. We were booked at Hotel Helnan Aswan. The hotel was magnificently placed beside the River Nile, and we had a magnificent view from the room.
Cairo is a busy, bustling city with ages of history behind it. We spent a total of around 2 and half days in Cairo. One and half day spent in exploring the pyramid area, Cairo museum and a bit of main Cairo city. The other day was spent not exactly in Cairo, but in Memphis, Saqqara which are within 30-40 kms of Cairo.
“Why Egypt of all places?”, asked many when we told them of our plans to visit this country.
