Egypt - Our first hotel!

We arrived in Cairo at 3 in the morning and everyone was really tired. This country already seemed different and everyone was a little edgy I don’t know if it was the time of day or the fact of all the arabs around us eying our bags. We met our guide “Mohamed” who was extremely kind and basically held our hands through the airprt. He explained a bit of the history to us on the way to our hotel which took about half an hour. It was amazing how everyone was driving so well to help everyone else and Mohamed explained that Cairo has very few car crashes compared to the other cities of the world. We got to the hotel, the Cairotel and it was a piece of junk, I hate it. The rooms are worn down with pieces of the wall on the floor and you cant tell the color of the original carpet. As soon as we lay down in our beds Paul yelled theres gingerale stains in my bed (I’m pretty sure its seimen. I hope we leave the hotelas soon as possible. This is from David!!

Hi Holly,
Is sounds like you are having a great time. Nothing like different languages and new food to test your patience. Looking forward to hearing all about it when you get back.
