Egypt - One Week Earlier

By
Mortgage and Lending with Guaranteed Rate NMLS# 2611 NMLS #151088

What a difference a few days can make.  The turmoil in Egypt continues to dominate the national news.   It was just two weeks ago today that I was in Port Said, Cairo, the Pyramids of Giza and Alexandria.  Egypt was the last stop on our 11 night cruise to the Eastern Mediterranean.

Just yesterday, it was reported that the Egyptian military was closing many of the tourist attractions including the Pyramids of Giza.  The pyramids were pretty spectacular.  It's amazing how well preserved they are still today.

Donne.....It was actually a lot of fun.  That is, once we got acclimated to then.  One minute we are on the ground, then up in the air the next.

Glad you got to see the pyramids, Rodney.  They are not to be missed.  I am sure things will get back to normal and the tourists will be back.
