PostSubject: PIX FROM MY TRIP TO CAIRO   Tue Oct 21, 2008 11:30 pm

i went to egypt last tet holiday, in february. the downer part was failing to transfer my money to my international bank account and having to spend 14 days in an ice cold hotel with not enough money to do more than wander around cairo. it was so nice to get back to my nice hot humid country, but it was a memorable trip anyway. and it was nice to have all that cash that i was going to blow sitting waiting for me. well, that's glossing it, it would have been nice to see the valley of the kings and all that stuff at the bottom of the country. the only thing i splurged on was the egyptian museum, and you couldn't take pictures in there. i didn't even see the damn pyramids. hows that for a proper ejip trip!

well the pix were good, mostly.



i love the new bangkok airport. it's the greatest in the world.

i hope to go back in better circumstances, cairo alone is worth two weeks. i don't know why more people don't know about it, it really is quite a city, the biggest in africa. there's a lot of hard times going about there, but the people were dead sweet and i made friends everywhere. and some of the sights as you see, are spectacular.




it's great to see arabic everywhere. not a lot of english to help you, but that made it all the more interesting. i think there's more english in saigon that in cairo.

someone should give me a prize for this one. i love the faces on these ladies, the man and the kitty looking away, everything, what a choice foto mitta spock! cam on nhieu!

life can be so tiring eh, just a slog slog slog from day to friggin day for the masses of people. and nothing more to do sometimes but just keep keeping on. nice as the egyptians were, they are carrying a heavy load there in the desert, the lack of food and clement weather makes it hard to be happy i reckon. viet nam is about as poor, but the weather, the cheap and abundant food, and the intense social culture of cheer and laughing at whatever you can makes them seem so less burdened, it's a really happy country. my heart got good yanks in cairo, but the yoke of existence is so much easier here for the poor.

i read quite an interesting article about young egyptian men finding release in dubai. they don't want to go back home, and spiritually barren as dubai is, it's hard to argue with their sentiments. i'll try to find the article.

this incredible joint was a living tragedy. look at all the work that went into this, and the interior is gutted and roofless and filled with rubble, just waiting for demolition. i guess one can be thankful their economy is too depressed to up and go knock this treasure down. there was an awful lot of this, masterful structures crumbling and just waiting for the end.

one nice thing about north africa, there is no racism, nobody is judged by their colour, just by their wealth or lack of it.

one of the most amazing museums in the world, a shame so much is uncatalogued and left to crumble in there too though. got to see king tut and all his goodies in the special tut room though, holy cow the dood was stylin'!
