Final thoughts about our trip!
Well, there is finally time to finish off our travel blog and upload a few photos.
Our final contrast of this country was in leaving the airport. When we arrived we entered through the old terminal - about what I expected as we arrived. The big surprise upon our departure was that we were leaving from the new Cairo terminal - just opened a couple of days before we left. This world class terminal could fit into any major international city - a beautiful modern terminal that wasn't fully functional yet. There seemed to be a lot of 'suits' standing around watching the check in process. Remember that we were at the airport about 3 hours before departure yet it took almost all of that time to check in. What a country.......
My thanks once again to our tour guide Rafik who helped make our trip so very enjoyable. Also, I would like to commend the intrepid group of travellers who were absolutely up for any adventure on this trip - no matter how little sleep they had the night before! That fact made it back to the President of Top Deck Tours in London, England. Ladies (and Miguel) - I would travel anywhere with you. I was pleased to be part of this adventure. I wish you all well as you start the next adventure - whether it is in the travel industry or not - good luck to everyone!
