Today was a sight-seeing day in downtown Cairo - the 3rd largest city in the world! We saw thousands of unfinished brick buildings and learned the reason! The father buys land and builds the first floor for himself. Then each of his children get a floor as they marry. They only start paying taxes when the building is stuccoed and painted. So......they are never finished! Smart?
The Nile River in all it's splendor and mystery. It runs from south to north instead of north to south!
We visited the Egyptian Museum and saw all the priceless items of King Tut and others. The museum has over 200,000 artifacts and if one were to spend just one minute seeing each item it would take over 3 months straight to see everything!
