This morning our ship docked at ??? from which we bussed about 120 km to Cairo through their infamous snarled traffic. Destination Cairo Museum and a guided tour of the antiquities. Most special was a visit to the King Tut tomb rooms with fantastic gold items well shown. His death mask was the real one, not the traveling copy.
Lunch at the Le Meridien Hotel was followed by several stops at the Giza Pyramids. We could see the Step Pyramid in the distance. Moving on, we walked around the Sphinx before leaving for the ship in convoy security. But the inevitable stop for shopping preceded our return trip.
