getting there can be incredibly expensive

i am good at finding deals.

 

once you are there, you can do it cheaply

BUT

it is not like europe, where a backpacker type is understood.

you still represent great relative wealth, and many people will expect to be rewarded for helping you break the rules (like taking a photo where you aren't supposed to in a historic site)

they also won't expect to give you a deal, and you often have to bargain

if you're good at that sort of thing and/or have experience in a 3rd world country, where people are looking to make money off of you and constantly asking, you will be fine

 

it's a very safe place and very friendly

 

i have done a lot of solo travel, and this is one place i would not recommend it

while it is completely possible, there is some culture shock and it helps to have a friend.

locals are very curious and extremely inquisitive

there is no sense of personal privacy in many respects

and if you are a western woman and not dressed modestly, you shouldn't be surprised if you receive unwanted physical contact

 

all in all, it was a fantastic vacation with few bumps

thx again!

 

the Sphinx's name in Arabic roughly translates to "Father of Terror"

i love that for some reason.

to me, it lived up to it's reputation

it is in the middle of a regular ass Giza neighborhood, which is a little strange

 

the guide told us Napolean's army rolled through Egypt and took target practice at it's face and that's why the nose is so extensively damaged

Dope pics Egypt is the shit.

everyone in eqypt expects to be paid for everything they do and not just from tourists its the culture there always keep a lot of singles in your pocket. if someone helps you park or anything give them a pound, the conversion is so low its nothing to us.

 

Did you either of you go to Alexandria at all?

awesome flix. you are a lucky man! i was hoping to be able to get out there at some point this year but getting surgery on my foot turned out to be more important at this point.

 

did you use any sort of tour agency or anything, if so can you let me know. if you happened to mention that, sorry i didn't read everything yet.

i didn;t get to alexandria, we only had time to do the nile valley and aswan.

 

i never use travel agencies or agents, i do it myself since it's so much cheaper.

 

that napolean faq isn't loading for me, btw.

 

the insides of the pyramids usually are not that interesting.

we weren't allowed to bring cameras into the valley fo the kings.

Dope thread. keep the pics coming.

Anyone know why we have the same structure in Washington DC?

 

Also, OP: after seeing the pyramids in real life, do you think there's any chance that aliens built them?
