Itinerary & Notes
Salaam Aleikum! Welcome to Egypt. Cairo is an intriguing mix of the modern and ancient. You will meet your group and leader at a welcome meeting at 5 pm tonight, so please make sure you have your next of kin and insurance details handy. Head out for a meal with your new crew and get to know each other over some local fare. For those who arrive early and have free time, there are plenty of things to see and do. Travel along the river by felucca, head out to explore the markets, or, if the hustle and bustle of the city is too much, catch the metro into the oldest part of the city, the Coptic Christian sector. The latter is a haven of peace and quiet, with narrow cobbled streets and beautiful old churches.
