Cairo

$
The flight to Cairo was bumpy. I was happy to be out of the terminal and on the plane with Adam, a cucumber sandwich and a side of cucumber slices. When we landed to clapping and cheers I was glad I hadnít understood the pilotís frequent announcements.

In Cairo, we were fast tracked through customs; Egyptians had confidence or experience in the Israeli search process. In Cairo there is local pricing and tourist pricing, we found out after our cab ride to our hotel that we would be paying tourist pricing.

Cairo is a city of seventeen million people and three million cars where the horn is the standard. A short tap would signify good day or how are you; a longer and more forceful sound would alert surrounding drivers to get out of the way, to watch out or **** off.
