a visit to the wonders

it has been six days since i have been out of the country. the short term trip feels like the long term one. somehow i don't feel comfortable in these countries. i generally go to middle eastern countries. more often then not there is much to see, of course other than the conversion of opulence in to swanky roads, glass building, chic malls and clean cornices.

but this time i went to an african one :D and this was special for two reasons:-

1. the obvious one - it has one of the wonders of the world :D yea, egypt :D
2. the program got canceled earlier and i was very unhappy about it.

saw the pyramids the very next morning - as they were visible from the hotel itself. but the real sweet surprise came when we realised that they were en route the client office. we could be more leisurely. i made sure that the work was completed on the first day itself and the next day would just be formalities so that i can give some more time to the pyramids. went there and didn't get ripped off. the tour, the guide tips and the papyrus paintings - everything was inside $200 [including the entry to the egyptian museum on the tahrir square in the downtown]. and let me tell you, visit to the pyramids is incomplete without a visit to the museum. it is just two floors but houses so much stuff that you will forget what did you see two sections back.

anyways, did click the pics too but don't have the cord to transfer them. will do when back home. till then be good...
