Landed in Cairo about an hour ago. Before you start to wonder if I’ve lost my mind, I did check out all the various travel warnings before booking the flight and it seems with a little common sense travel in Egypt should be fairly safe now. Or at least I hope.
I have a break from French class this week, so I started looking at flights from Geneva, and eventually settled on Egypt. Egypt is somewhere I’ve wanted to go to ever since the ancient Egypt unit in grade six, and it seems like a really exciting time to be visiting Egypt and seeing first hand what is happening.
Life in Cairo (at least as seen from a car window) appears to be proceeding normally again. There are almost no tourists, but the streets are clogged with cars, and the bustling with people going about their lives. I have no idea what Cairo will be like when I have a chance to see more of the city tomorrow, or what the rest of Egypt is like, but I’ll keep you updated!
