The final three days of our amazing trip were in Cairo. We stayed in an absolutely wonderful hotel (the Kempinski - a chain of top hotels in many parts of the world except the USA), and we hired a private guide for the three days there, and he was wonderful. Jeanette was a bit "under the weather" those days, so we moved a little more slowly, but we saw the great pyramids, Alexandria, and the awesome museum in Cairo. The "King Tut" exhibit was beyond imagination - almost unbelievable things that had been discovered. Egypt was a great place to end our travels - we loved everything except the traffic - you would never believe how everybody drives there. The poverty and economic conditions are almost appalling - we're so grateful for the blessings we have in our country.
