Went to Egypt end June and it was hot, hot, really hot!
I thought I was able to “tahan” the warm weather, being a Singaporean. But it was still scorching hot.
Nevertheless, the sights were beautiful- the pyramids, the ancient temples, Nile River… there was so much to see and history was just round every corner.
Imagine the tour guide mentioning casually as our bus drove throught the city. “Oh, this wall was X thousands years old.”
The good thing about visiting Egypt during summer was that there were less crowds and queues and things were cheaper.
And no, I didn’t bring Zee Zou there. It was just too warm for a baby.
But we bought her some souvenirs…
You can imagine this going through her head:
“My parents went to Egypt without me & all I got is this touristy T-shirt from Egypt.”
(Inspired by Lynne Chee’s blog entry on the souvenir she got when she attended her friend’s wedding overseas.)
