The Old Seen From The New


One of my all-time favourite juxtapositions in Giza is the placement of a Kentucky Fried Chicken and Pizza Hut just facing the Sphinx and the Pyramids. What can you say?

Apologies for not being around. Friends offered me a Nile cruise. Never been on one before, so I went and took my buddy Da Moose. Check my other blogs for news and photos of that...but this should make up for it.

Goodness, talk about the relentless march of capitalism - is nothing sacred?! Great shot!

I just found your blog and devoured every photo. You've captured all the wonderful little things about Egypt so well and made me love my country a bit more! Thanks and keep posting!

Oh, now I understand why the slaves, having escaped from Pharaoh, murmured against Moses and longed for "the flesh-pots of Egypt" where they had always had enough bread and plenty of meat in the meat-pots. They could probably still smell that KFC chicken being deepfried and the pepperoni pizzas being baked!

The Nile Cruise was well-worth it, IMHO. Looking forward to seeing photos of that.
