River Nile

Day 148- The Nile and Tahrir Square

Today we took it easy by going for a walk around our hotel. We are located near Tahrir Square, the heart of the 2011 revolution! It was crazy walking around this intersection because the cars are constantly coming and full speed and pedestrians just sort of dodge them! There are also no lanes, so cars just kind of do whatever they want! And to think we complained about cars in Italy and Morocco!

We are also close to the Cairo Museum and a couple blocks from the Nile, so we saw both of those on our walk as well! We will be visiting the Cairo Museum in a couple days!

For the rest of the afternoon, Alexander was able to catch up on work and we both did some tax stuff (YAY). 

However, for dinner we went to the hotel restaurant. We ordered the two most expensive things on the menu, had a bread appetizer, shared a dessert, and our total was $41! We are baffled by how inexpensive everything is here, we feel like we are living the high life! 

In the back of the photo, you can the dish that Alexanders meat came on. It is a variety of traditional grilled meats- all of which were great!
