As we are rather tired today, we left at 2 am and came back at 10 pm I just post some pictures and tell more about our trip later. (we made 1000 km in one day !)
We discover the pyramides and the sphinx
Chantal is the best example that even handicapped you can enjoy life very much ! We took a camel ride and here you see how she was sat on the camel ! My camel had the nice name of Michael Jackson. Fortunately it was very good and didn't dance like him. Moonwalk on a camel ? My poor bottom ! We admired the pyramides and Cairo from high above on our camels ! It was a wonderful feeling and I am sorry that we have no camel for sale and use in Waterloo ! It would be so nice to do my shopping and it could also mow the grass !
We also visited the biggest mosque in Cairo. For that we had to wear these green garden dwarf costumes. As I had a scarf I only had to wear the habit, but Chantel had it all and on top of it, they put her plastic bags on her shoes. She can't walk without the difference of her legs is too big.
You are only allowed to enter without shoes, which is understandable. They have beautiful carpets and tiles in there and they would get damaged with all these people. We laughed and laughed seeing each other and all the tourists were laughing when they saw themselves. The Egyptians laughed with us, it is very free and open there, some men were praying (or sleeping) on the carpet floor, some read a book, others walked around with their families.
We had a coffee just under the pyramides in a palace which belonged to the last King Faruk and had been transformed into a hotel and restaurant. I will show more pictures later. What a luxury and gold and gold!
More about Cairo tomorrow<
