Cairo or Bust

Months ago I mentioned that our bubble of Visit-ability seems to be shrinking daily.  The news in our part of the world tends to be a little, how do you say, disconcerting?  Worrisome? On the edge of craziness?

So we decided to go to Cairo.  It's not exactly calm in Cairo, or Egypt in general.  Alexandria just came off Ordered Departure last month.  But there's a referendum scheduled for next month, and things are generally calm, so we took the plunge.  No River Nile Cruise as I'd have loved to do, but a quick in-and-out trip to see the highlights of another ancient civilization.

More tomorrow...
