Arrived late yesterday evening, only got today here before flying to Aswan to join a river cruise up the Nile to Luxor, then back to Cairo for two days before flying home
Let me tell you driving in Cairo is not for the faint hearted, so we used taxis to get around today.

I didn’t take too many photographs in the museum, you need a permit. I based my decision on the fact that I will be able to take lots of photographs at the historic sites on the Nile cruise and trying to photograph through glass is a PITA.
I’m also using only my phone and my small Panasonic camera as you get a lot of hassle from the police if you use a Pro camera like the Olympus
That’s it another blog tomorrow, assuming I can get a signal on my ohone
