Japan, with a stopover in Abu Dabi.
This time, I visited Alexandria only, passing through Cairo.
Alexandria is a big beautiful city facing the Mediterranean Sea with a bit of European atmosphere,
different from the hustle and bustle of Cairo.
It was built by Alexander the Great and once the capital of the Ptolemaic dynasty, where
the last queen of the Ptolemaic dynasty, Cleopatra was.
We can see Alexandria Bibliotheque, Roman arena theater, and the other ruins and monuments here and there.
At the Cairo International airport, we got on the car directed by Youssef to pick up us and moved toward Alexandria.
On the way, we could see Pyramids in Giza and took some pictures.
The roads are jammed with many cars and noisy with horns.
Pedestrians snake through the congestions with no fear, without walking along the sidewalk.
There are some lanes but crazy drivers drive crossing over the lanes and passing by cars, even at a fairly high speed.
They must have some traffic rules but nobody obeys the rules. We feel thrilling afraid of whenever an accident might happen.
This is the Egyptian style.
