I arrived yesterday on Egypt air's flight from Madrid. The flight superb, a little late but a brand new Boeing 737-800 took me here fast and safe.  The hotel is Ok, the price better. Today i went to Giza.  I bought expensive perfume from very experienced young businessmen, but i received some gifts and friendship.  Walked near Keops, Kefren and Myckerinos, great photos.  Today i went to the Egyptian Museum, which i loved deeply.  Saw the difference between Old, Middle and New kingdoms.  I saw besides Tutankamon's treasure, excepcionally great pieces of Egyptian art.  The actual mummys of Ramses II, Tutmosis III, Hapshetsut...At night i went to eat with my new friends at the store and experienced the Light and Sound show at Giza.   Bought some special souvenirs. I visited the Coptic neighborhood and the Coptic museum, special and marvelous.  Important because its monastic heritage.  The citadel and Hassan mosque, beautiful and massive.  Ibin Tulum and Zigurat, a master piece of 11 century Islamic art.  At night i walked Cairo with my friend and chauffeur, Mohamed.  I ate a delicious Swarma and unbelievable Arab pastries.  Bought my last items for Nairobi.
