  DAY 1 // CairoCairo was dirty, unkept, unstable and chaotic like most of Bangkok, although far worse – and I loved it, but hated it all the same. I was expecting this as this is what Cairo is, especially with the daily and sometimes fatal protests that were going on at Tahrir Square which was literally a walk away from my accommodation, Brothers Hostel. Most people probably think downtown Cairo is physically ugly, and I agree somewhat. I see it as ugly-beautiful. The almost uniform color shades of yellow and yellowish grey of the architecture where nearly all buildings are falling apart has a certain character to it, something I have never seen in a big city. Even as a native New Yorker that has travelled to 16 countries , it took me some getting used to. The next day I visited the Egyptian Museum.
Saqqara is a huge necropolis. Several pyramids, countless mastaba tombs, and the Stepped Pyramid Complex at its heart. The museum is great too. It's perhaps the second most impressive site after the Giza Pyramids & the Sphinx.

About Giza

Pyramid was Built in 2490 BC by Pharaoh of Menkaure, the Son of Pharoah Khafre and measures 356.5 feet (109 metres) high. One of the most famous structures on the list of the seven wonders of the ancient world is The Great Pyramid of Giza.The Great Pyramid of Giza was the tallest man made structure in the world for 3800 years which is not only a testament to its durability but to its mark as one of the most remarkable structures built.Even today, Egyptologists are not completely sure how The Great Pyramid of Giza was built. In about 2,550 B.C. Pharaoh Khufu ordered the building of his tomb on the plateau of Giza which lies on the outskirts of Cairo. The tomb was designed to protect the Pharaoh’s body as well as his possessions. This would ensure a safe trip with all his belongings into the afterlife.The Great Sphinx:After the pyramids of Giza we visited The Great Sphinx which has the head of a man with a lion’s body.The light and sound show here begins with the story of the Sphinx who has been an eye witness to everything that happened in Egypt for the last five thousand years . The show also depicted the story of building the pyramids and relates the history of great and famous figures of ancient Egypt like Thutmosis IV, Akhnaten, Nefertiti and Tut Ankh Amon . Sakkara :Sakkara is best known for the Step Pyramid, the oldest known of Egypt's 97 pyramids. It was built for King Djoser of the 3rd Dynasty by the architect and genius Imhotep, who designed it and its surrounding complex to be as grand as it was unique and revolutionary
