A Taste of Egypt

Egypt was spectacular on many levels. From the impossible-to-describe pyramids (we went inside the largest and for a few moments had it all to ourselves), to the incredible beauty of Al-Azhar Park (a former trash dump turned into a little paradise), to the totally insane reality of daily streetlight (ever seen a cow slaughtered on the street?) -- we loved it all! We've never had so many people give us a genuine "welcome" and so many people try to con us. It was the total package.

Below is a little photo/video montage. Wish we could include music and smells, but you'll have to let your imagination run wild. Just click on the Taste of Egypt link below the photo.
