Coptic Museum in Cairo has the World’s Largest Collection of Coptic Artifacts

The¬†Coptic Museum in Cairo has the world’s largest collection of coptic artifacts. I find this museum more interesting than the overcrowded Egyptian Museum in downtown Cairo.

Mediterranean sunset in Alexandria is, oh boy, breathtaking. While I was in Alexandria last month, a local couchsurfer (Thanks, Abdulazziz!) brought me to Montaza Palace Gardens.

View from Cairo Tower on a Polluted Day

If someone told you that the view from Cairo Tower is amazing don’t fully believe him. There’s nothing spectacular from up there. It was not even breathtaking for me. I wasn’t that impressed.
