Egypt. I believe most of you knew I was going to write about that since it was my first time there..
Well with all respect to Egyptian people whom some of them are actually close friends of mine.. Egypt SUCKS..
I know you guys love your country and who does not!!! And perhaps there is a part of Cairo that I haven’t realized since I was nothing but a poor tourist who had no idea what was going on around her!!!
WITHOUT DETALIS!!
We were fooled!!
Laughed at!!
We spent a lot of money that we weren’t suppose to!! And moreover, it was not a clean city!! Extremely crowded!!
And I don’t understand people who spend more than 7 days there!! We were sleeping at 10 and waking up at 8!!! We visited the pyramids, the museums, the Nile of course and some of the malls they have!!!!
That's about it I don’t think I can afford writing about this topic again although some of people said we mad an enormous mistake by sleeping early and we should've gone out only after 10 p.m. and sleep through the day!! Which makes no sense to me,, traveling means going out during the day, seeing the country, not spend all day long at the hotel and going out at night!!
Okie dokie that’s all for now.. I hope u guys have a better luck with Cairo!!!

..Off course u might argue that Egypt isn't making it's own people comfortable too LOL .. anyway, welcome back, and next time stick with European countries as Egypt is obviously for another type of tourist :-)

lol

this is the first time I visit your blog, I read your earlier post stating you are leaving to Egypt, and felt a lot of excitement in it… then I read this one to see how depressed you got there…am sorry but I laughed… not at you, on the concept that is; how easy can a high spirits be smashed to the ground!

If you don’t know anyone of the citizens in most of the countries, specially the Arab ones, you will be abused there for sure, you have to read a lot and ask a lot before you go so you make sure you are doing the right things at the right costs.

Try Jordan next time, I will help you in planning a wonderful week there (Got to do it in spring or never).

Back to the real life… it always happens.

well..With all due respect to all Arab countries I don’t think I am willing to repeat the experience..

Hani said...

Well, the first time for you to really travel is your first time to learn how to plan it, so you cant judge so widely based on this experience. I know many people who enjoyed Egypt over and over again…

Next time will be much better am sure, just give it a second shot.
