Chris and Jerry stayed at the Sofitel Gezirah right on the Nile. It was beautiful and peaceful. I joined them for dinner their first night here.
Here's the hotel walkway running alongside the Nile leading to the restaurant.
The hummus with fresh cooked pita bread was wonderful.
The second night of Chris, Jerry and Jonathan's visit, Cameron and I joined them at their hotel for dinner.
There were musicians for dinner and musicians in the lobby of the hotel. It was very elegant. This really is a prime tourist spot and there are still relatively few tourists here so it's a great time to visit without crowds.
I like this photo of Chris and little Jonathan.
Here we all are at the Egyptian Museum. No cameras were allowed inside so we just have a few outdoor shots.
Next to the Egyptian Museum is the shell of the recently burned headquarters of the National Democratic Headquarters, former President Mubarak's party. The high court in Egypt recently ordered last week that the National Democratic Party be disbanded and all their property and assets handed over to the government because of corruption during the Mubarak years. Here's a link to article about this:
The next stop was Coptic Cairo.
Cameron and Jonathan had a fun time fooling around in the back of the van.
Back at the hotel, our wild cousin Chris said how much she enjoyed jumping on beds when she was a kid... so did the boys!
We all enjoyed the headet pool overlooking the Nile at Chris and Jerry's hotel. Cameron and Jonathan enjoyed climbing on Jerry in the pool, chanting "Daddy's for dinner!" Jerry was very good-natured about being a human jungle gym.
We're headed to dinner in this photo. Jonathan likes to dress up and 'look smart'.
I have a few videos to post another time but they will take some time to upload.
