Egypt

Three weeks ago I celebrated my birthday in Cairo Egypt, to date that was the best birthday I’ve had. My trip was packed with culture and adventure. Our first full day there which was Sunday, we had to visit the pyramids in Giza and the Sphinx on camels. The next day we ventured to The Great Mosque of Muhammad Ali Pasha which opened in 1848. Tuesday was my birthday and I wanted to ride an ATV in the desert and that’s what we did our backdrop were the pyramids of Giza after that we had dinner on the Nile River. Wednesday we started our day at the Egyptian Museum for a two our tour of the museum, there we saw the mummies of  Ramses I, Seti I, and many other royal figures. We also saw ancient Egyptian antiques and artifacts belonging to Tutankhamun aka King Tut. After the museum we went to Cairo Tower, the tower offers panoramic view of the capital. To end our Wednesday, we were treated to a dinner cruise up on Nile River.

Thursday was our last official activity day so we made it a good one. We first visited The Mosque of Amir which was originally built in 641-642 AD. The original structure was the first mosque ever built in Egypt and in Africa. Then we proceeded to the Dahshur and there we went inside of The Pyramid of Snefru aka The Red Pyramid, there was no light walking down into the pyramid, so we had to use the light from our cellphones to help guide us. I was nervous so I asked my friend to go first (lol). Next we went to The Pyramid of Djoser aka the Step Pyramid, which is was built during the 3rd dynasty. After that we went inside of tombs with hieroglyphics written on the walls. Seeing that was surreal, being inside of something and being able to touch something that was built before Christ was born was surreal. I stood inside of history and my pictures don’t do any of what I saw with my own eyes justice.  My trip was amazing, I plan to go back to Egypt to visit different parts, I also plan to take more cultural and historical trips. If anyone is interested in visiting Cairo, I can put you in contact with a great guide.
