This image is probably a bit upsetting for some people, but we felt it was important to show some of the other sides of Cairo that not many people see. The City of the Dead is a very poor district with lots of strays and rubbish piled up in corners of the street as there's nowhere else for it to go.
,,Daiana, why do you like Cairo that much? You’ve already been there, why do you come back?''
I heard these questions many times from both my Romanian and Egyptian friends. I answered them every time: it’s very simple!
I don’t see the dirty, noisy, crowded side of this city, neither I come back for its touristic attractions (which anyway I’ve been to them several times already). I love this city/ country for the people I’ve met here and I am immensely grateful that I have amazing friends around me each time I come here, very helpful and kind. And I am even happier that my parents could meet all of them and know my Egyptian friends!
So, you see, it’s all about PEOPLE <3 They make me come back each time!
Any other foreigner will come as a tourist to Cairo, for few days, take some photos and leave. But I lived here almost 2 months and my feelings for this city are different of anything a tourist might say they like this city. I don’t like it, I love it. Maybe that’s why I talk about it so passionately. I really hope every foreigner/ tourist will get this vibe… and if not, just call me to be your local private tour guide 😄
Cairo gave me a bit of everything in only 2 months there, but the best of all was the feeling of not being a tourist!! Maybe some of you can’t understand what I am talking about, but believe me, this is extremely important for a total experience of any city and not many realize it until they try it.
Anyway, I just wanted to conclude these 10 days we had here with a big, huge, uncounted THANK YOU!! To all the people who helped us with all the details of this trip (I don’t mention all of you again), I was so happy to see you all again and to get to know new ones on the way. You’ve all been amazing and I already told you this 528941 times!!
P.S. Don’t miss me too much, you’ll see me again soon! 😄 Love you!
بالقاهرة ونيلها وطول ليلها
وأغانيها ومواويلها وحكاويها آه يا جمالها
القاهرة تجيلها تحنّلها
وتهواها ما تنساها وتتحاكى بأحوالها
Once you visit it, you fall in love with it, you never forget it, you miss it, you tell its beautiful stories ❤ Cairo has a magic that will trap you...you have to trust me and to give it a try at least once in your life!! Better go there and explore it by yourself rather than hearing about it or seeing photos on social media/ books. Go for that trip that will get you completely out of your comfort zone! Yes, challenging most probably, but the best you could have!!
I know it sounds pretty much as an advertising, but it’s the least I can do and people around me know how much I promoted this country and its attractions since my first visit here. I am extremely happy to see that some chose it after my recommendations and others are still asking me a lot about it and how they can make it. I should open a tour agency in Cairo.. I know 🙌😄
Plus, what can I do.. I drunk from the Nile, I will always come back to this city! 😉
La pirámide más grande de Egipto está en El Cairo y se llama Keops. Esa que hace unos días ha salido en las noticias por concentrar energía electromagnética a través de sus cámaras ocultas. Por cierto, la de Kefrén (punta protegida por una cubierta de caliza) parece más grande, pero es porque está sobre un terreno más elevado. La más pequeña es la de Micerinos. La Esfinge, que conduce a la pirámide de Kefrén, se está deteriorando irreversiblemente y sin solución, de momento. Se cree que el motivo es la mezcla de contaminación y la subida de las aguas. Una pena. El calor que hace estos días me ha hecho volver a esta imagen del pasado. ¿Habéis visitado Egipto? https://tupersonalshopperviajero.blogspot.com/2011/04/giza-plateau-egipcian-museum-and-tahrir.html
The largest pyramid in Egypt is in Cairo and is called Cheops. That one that a few days ago has been in the news for concentrating electromagnetic energy through its hidden cameras. By the way, Khafre(tip protected by a limestone cover) seems larger, but it is because it is on higher ground. The smallest is that of Micerinos. The Sphinx, which leads to the pyramid of Kefrén, is deteriorating irreversibly and without solution, at the moment. It is believed that the reason is the mixture of pollution and the rise of water. A shame. The heat that these days has made me return to this image of the past. Have you visited Egypt?
This was a trip i dreamed of to enjoy it and finally happened during a summer few years ago in which for 2 weeks i traveled to Egypt visiting, Cairo, Alexandria, pyramids and all the monuments around them like here me infront of Sphinx sourounted by many ancient sculptures and labyrinths and i enter into the main pyramid of Cheops ,museums, a short time cruise of river Neil, after Sarm El Sheikh, admiring all these masterpieces and i promised to my self if i get the opportunity to revisit 🇪🇬Egypt to do this time the 2 to 3 weeks depending on what will you choose the long time cruise to river Neil approaching the water wall close to the borders of 🇸🇩Sudan, but in this specific trip i had a very difficult situation due to ate a simple ice cream in the Hilton hotel in Cairo which was made of natural water and i had a terrible stomach pain of 3 days, you never dring in those countries non bottled water in order to avoid to be very sick and to be absolutely necessary to visit the nearest hospital or doctor in order to be treated properly due to my experience it was such pain in all my belly area and even shouting due to hard pain in the flying plain which transferred in Sarm el Sheikh for the rest one week of vacations in this weird but beautiful places#summerholidaysinegypt#egyptianmagicplaces#5000yearsofcontinuinghistory#visitcairo#visitegyptianmonumments#alexandriainegypt#visitsarmelsheikh#visitneilbycrusing#egyptiansandgreeksareverygoodfriendsnations #
