Greetings from Egypt!
Today we arrived at Cairo International Airport at around noon (Egypt time) after a long, uneventful ten hour flight. From there, we were greeted by the Go Ahead tours staff, who kindly escorted us to our hotel. The Pyramids Park Resort is a stone's throw away from the Giza Pyramids! After having a relaxing afternoon to recuperate from the flight, we were given a briefing regarding our stay in Egypt for the next 11 days. We enjoyed a lovely buffet dinner, and are trying to catch up on the missed hours of sleep. Tomorrow, we are heading to the Pyramids at 6:00 a.m. Ewwww.... but it will be a wonderful kickoff to our exploration of Egyptian culture and history. Stay tuned!!
