Arriving to Giza

After getting out of the train, we took a taxi to get to the sightseeing areas. Yes, I was finally getting to see what the ancient pharaohs had left the world, in person. Excitement could not even describe, what I was feeling. It was a mixture of excitement, familiarity and peace. For some reason, deep down I knew this experience would change me.

Once at the entrance, there will be two lines to buy tickets. One side is for locals and the other is for tourists. Luckily, my friend bought tickets for me, so I got the local price. The funny thing about this, people were asking me for directions because I looked Egyptian.

Giza is not like what the movies show you. It’s actually right next to the city. As seen in the picture above! Still it was breathtakingly beautiful. There are a lot of people harassing you to buy something from them. They speak in every language known to man! Haha The best thing to do is just ignore them and say no.

The desert Taken by Hugo Morel

When you look at the desert, gives you the feeling like the desert goes on forever. Never seen anything like it. Viewing the sahara desert from the plane is completely different than seeing it on the ground. It’s like the deserts in California times tens.

One thing that stood out to me was the treatment of animals. I felt bad at how they treated them. I couldn’t look at times.

As goofy as camels are, I learned to value them. This one person kept treating one horribly. He continued to hit the camel every time the animal slowdown. This experience made me not want to ride a camel. I didn’t want to encourage this industry. Hopefully by you reading this, you will think twice about having a camel ride.

Next week, we will go to the pyramids!!

Thank you for reading. Much love and safe travels!

  1. I was in Egypt two weeks ago and was lucky enough to go to the Valley of the Kings and agree with the treatment of animals. I would never get a camel ride and my favourite phrase was “no thank you.” Near where we were I’m Hurghada, they seemed to have a love of phrase “lovely jubbly” which only made me more annoyed. I never felt unsafe, it was just constantly annoying. I appreciate they have to make a living, but if I pass one stall and co time talking to my companions, if I want to go into another stall, I will, I don’t need to be followed for hundreds of metres. Like I said, I absolutely appreciate it is their way of living and earning money.

  2. A week ago I published a few blog posting statistics and another regarding the main takeaways had been that a lot of bloggers still battle to
    find visitors and traffic. This is certainly a real pity because all that perseverance writing articles and ass building breathtaking blog sites is
    squandered unless you get individuals reading them.
