Back to the story ... when we got off the plane, a guy was there in the arrivals hall with a sign that had the yellow Egypt Reiser logo on it. We also had the logo as tags on our luggage, so we all three spotted each other. :-) I don't remember this guy's name, but he wasn't very important anyway, he was just there to take us out to our minibus where our coordinator was waiting with the other Norwegians who were booked into our hotel. There were four of these people and you will definitely hear more about them later. The coordinator was a nicely turned out young man called Wael who spoke good English and obviously could not possibly function without his cell phone.
A tiny piece of Cairo International Airport. It's currently undergoing reconstruction; a new international terminal, Terminal 3, will be ready ... maybe this fall, though it was originally supposed to open this spring. So ... not entirely on schedule. :-) It will have a capacity of around 11 million passengers.
As we drove to the city towards our hotel, which was in the Garden City district, Wael told us various facts and figures about famous landmarks that we were passing. The military stadion, the Egyptian Museum, etc. While we were driving I shot some videos. They aren't very long, but they may be fun to watch, maybe. :-)
