Egypt is for me one of the most fascination countries in the world. Its history is unlike any other – who can resist the lure of the pyramids and the Sphinx or the majesty of the Valley of the Kings? I have been to Cairo – many years ago and not on a planned trip. It happened. The noise of the city and the sounds of the Islamic call to prayer made an impression on me and I really would like to get back there.
Visiting the Egyptian Museum in Cairo is on my bucket list. Something I hope to visit soon!
