We visited Egypt – Luxor, Giza, Cairo, and Alexandria – from Dec 13 – 25 in part to participate in the DoLab’s Great Convergence event at the Great Pyramids in Giza from Dec 20 – 22. Being a colorful and convoluted adventure – from temples to people to camels to travels – I took notes. Here’s a lengthy narrative filled with observations and experiences from that absolutely amazing trip. Enjoy!
We arrived into Cairo airport several days ago. An opinionated cab driver navigated us around the outskirts of Cairo and into the noisy evening traffic of giza to the train station where we boarded an overnight train to luxor. The trains aren’t fancy but the bed was nice after the many hours of sitting on the plane.
