Vacation- Round 3 (World Wonder)

Sunday, we took the train to Cairo. I had been there for only a few hours when I flew in, and so it was nice to be able to explore the city a little more, go to an unbelievable mall, eat at On the Border, visit new friends and, of course, see the Pyramids and the Sphinx (which, by the way, is so much smaller than you think in real life). I rode a camel for the first time and bought some great gifts for friends and family (and myself).

One of the 9 pyramids and the Sphinx (told you it was kinda little)

This is my camel. I shall call him "Nappy," and he shall be mine.

Camels are grouchy.

Now, I've seen two world wonders: the pyramids and the Taj Mahal.

I had such a great time with my sweet friend. It was an easy, laid back vacation for the both of us. It's good when you get to vacation with someone else who lives cross-culturally because the "go" and "do" and "see" just doesn't have to happen unless it happens. It was a good break from my crazy, chaotic South Asian life, and I enjoyed spending time with my friend from the farm.

I love you, Sarah!
