Phil Dunn and I met up in the Cairo airport first thing in the morning on February 2nd. We were both totally jet-lagged, and Phil had just witnessed an epic fistfight right before I got there. We spent an hour or so in the Airport sorting out cellphone contracts and hotel reservations, it was all pretty surreal.
After one night at an overpriced hotel, we found another one downtown. We discovered some amazing food, such as something I’d never heard of before called Koshary. We visited the Pyramids, of course. On camels.
But the highlight was meeting up with some people from couchsurfing.org and going on a day-trip with them out into the desert. It was about half Egyptians, and half expats. Everyone was really fun and friendly.
