Adventure in Egypt

The adventure that is Egypt never ends! That is why it is a shame if you come to Egypt, especially for the first time, and miss the grandiose sites, such as the Pyramids of Giza, Abu Simbel or the west bank of Luxor, to name but a few. There are so many travellers who fly direct to Upper Egypt to see Luxor and Aswan, hoping that they will be stumble across the Pyramids as well, and then they realize that they have to travel 720Km to Cairo, where the Pyramids actually are, and end up paying $400 extra to travel and see one site, which is most probably about half of what they paid for their entire trip!



So my advice for you, dear traveller, is to plan well for your trip before you come. Advance planning is the best way to save time, money and effort, and of course to ensure that you get to see the sites that you have been dreaming about for some time.

Isolated reefs, big tidal movements and extraordinary marine life make Sharm el Sheikh one of Egypt's premier dive sites. It spreads across 74km (40 nautical miles) of open sea between the tip of Ras Muhammad and Hurghada.

Aside from the startling variety and colour of the reef species, there are sharks, sea turtles and dolphins. In fact, these reefs offer the best opportunity to swim with the dolphins in the northern Red Sea.

Egypt is one of the proofs that ancient people are very intelligent and resourceful just come to think of building those pyramids just by the use of their hands

Hello
Gail Howard flies to Cairo, Egypt from Khartoum, Sudan in 1968 and that evening tours the pyramids of Giza under a full moon with Winfred Godowski, who is dressed in full formal wear. Next day, while crawling on hands and knees in the tunnels of the great Pyramid of Cheops Gail runs into Mr. Farouk, the Ceylonese gem merchant she had met in 1966 when she barely escaped being arrested for smuggling gems. Mr. Farouk informs Gail that no valuable gemstones can be found in Cairo since Gamal Abdel Nasser, the president of Egypt, had socialized everything. With no gems to buy, Gail goes dancing and dining, with wild-haired Bedouins who famously whirl like dervishes. The crazy-driving-horse-back-riding Godowski and Gail gallop through the desert around Cairo and then on to Sakkara, Memphis, and Alexandria looking for Egyptian antiquities and ancient artifacts. Gail Howard meets Robert Hosni, one of the five leading authorities on ancient coins in Egypt, who introduces her to the works of the famous 19th century ancient coin expert Dattari and to Henri Shiha, the leading authority in Egypt on ancient coins and Egyptian antiquities. Totally charmed by Gail, Henri Shiha assesses Gailís genuine but less than fabulous finds and generously gifts her with truly wondrous treasures and fascinating stories from Egyptian history, as well as tips on how to turn a $150 purchase into a $5,000 sale.
