A few days in Egypt’s capital, doing some more touristy stuff.


First of all, the Mena House Hotel, with its rather excellent view of the Pyramids.

On our second morning we got up really early and walked up to, and around, the pyramids. We got back in time for breakfast.

Cairo Museum

On our third day in Cairo we took an organised bus trip over to the Egyptian Museum for a hot and sweaty gawp at some ancient artefacts.
