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.

This Mediterranean City, founded by Alexander the Great, has many unique attractions. Spent the day viewing the relics of a bygone age; these are the highlight of Alexandria. Visited sites such as Pompeii's Pillar, the only Amphitheatre built by the Romans in Egypt, Catacomb and more.

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.
