Egypt = Wow.
Did you know the pyramids are HUGE? And astonishingly close to the city? It was so odd, and impressive, to see them looming behind the cityscape. The skyscrapers were puny in comparison! I can’t imagine how big they would have been those thousands of years ago. It is no wonder that the Pharaohs succeeded in convincing the people they were gods: I would have thought so!
The kibbuts we stayed in last night was nice and clean. They were laid out similarly to most hostels I experienced in Europe except that someone forgot to stock our room with blankets (top sheet only) and the air conditioning was controlled by a remote control we couldn’t find! Brrr….
