The Trip to Egypt (Day One)

So, today's the day when we wd have left on our long-awaited trip to Egypt to see the Sphinx, the Pyramids, and so much more.

That, of course, is before the pandemic struck.

We're grateful not to have fallen ill, or gotten over there and been stranded, with no place to stay and no way to get back. But we're rueful to have so much planning just fade away. So since it was already so much on my mind I thought I'd make a series of posts of where we were going to be and what we were going to be doing on the ten days of our trip.

And who knows? We've rescheduled the trip for next year, and if things calm down and stay calm we may yet make it over there. But for now, we'll console ourselves with tracing our steps and best we can with what we were

April 11th.
DAY ONE: Travel

Today  wd have been our big travel day -- first a long flight to Frankfurt, then on to Cairo. Though we leave home the early afternoon of Friday the 11th, with the long flights and time change and moderate layover it'd be mid-afternoon Saturday when we'd arrive -- just over twenty-four hours.

Next Up: we're in Egypt!
