Welcome to Cairo
WOW! I just arrived in Cairo today, at about 3 in the afternoon. I stepped off of the plane and entered a sauna. I knew Cairo was going to be hot, but it has surpassed its expectations. For the first time in my life (and this isn't a bad thing), I am a minority. Standing in the passport control line, almost all of the people I saw were Arabs, and there were certainly no blonde, tall, blue-eyed Americans! Flying over Cairo, I felt so insignificant! Row upon row upon row of apartments covered the horizo-and then I saw the pyramids. Even from high up, they were magnificant!
