And here we are: The Pyramids! At 23, I’m one of the blessed globetrotter to discover one of the 7 wonders of the World, the wonderful Giza Pyramid. But not only! I had the pleasure to meet…You!
After dinner, our friends brought us to Old Cairo. This area is so-named “Old” as it contains the remains of the ancient Roman fortress of Babylon and also overlaps the original site of Fustat, the first Arab settlement in Egypt (7th century AD) being the predecessor of later Cairo.
Ok I admit. I wasn’t really the typical tourist who goes to Cairo just to explore and visit the city. Having friends all over the world, I went there to celebrate the birthday of a great friend of mine, Mohamed Hefzy, who lives in Cairo and meet some of my friends who came to the city for the weekend directly from Riyadh.
