I have spent the last 4 or 5 hours in an internet cafe in downtown Cairo uploading my pics from Bali and Cairo.  Finally!

I think I have finally figured out Egyptian driving:

Use your horn for everything:

  • Excuse me, I am passing you
  • Excuse me, I am passing you on the right
  • Excuse me, I am cutting you off
  • Excuse me, I am turning left across 4 lanes of traffic
  • Excuse me, I am about to run you down

Also, no matter how many lanes are painted on the road, you can always make 1 or 2 (or 3) more.  Traffic signals (if they exist) are completely ignored, as are crosswalks.  You can apparently turn in any direction, from any lane and stop wherever you like!  Driving or riding in a car is quite the adventure here!

This will be my last computer access until I hit Rome.  I get into Rome tomorrow night at 11:00 pm, then the next day I will be off exploring!
