Lunch Time Parking

No matter what you might find normal about Cairo and Giza, there are some things that simply aren't. One thing to remember, however, is that Cairo and Giza are, in fact, two separate cities, one on the east bank of the Nile and the other west bank. Giza, on the west bank of the Nile, is the city with the pyramids. Tombs during pharoanic times were always built on the west bank, so now a lot of the tourists are found on the west bank...and you are more likely to find a camel parked for its lunch on the sidewalk in Nazlit Semman, the neighbourhood that grew up around the Sphinx and pyramids of Giza.
