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.

I am looking forward to more.

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.
