View from the top – Cairo to Amman

The trip from Toronto to Cairo via EgyptAir was 10 hours. I actually didn’t mind the long haul as we were comfortably seated in Business/Executive Class, my very first experience to be treated like an Egyptian Queen. Sorry, Cleopatra, you’re so dead now! LOL….

When we arrived at Cairo International Airport, it reeked of cigarette. There was a smoking room nearby whose doors were open—and one guy was actually smoking right just outside the door. The ‘No Smoking’ signs weren’t heeded. Security was tight, too. International transfer queue was too long and slow and we had to pass a small hallway to the luggage scanner. But, of course, we didn’t hold in line. Business class ticket holders have perks! 😉

We stayed at the airport lounge for 2 hours—and food wasn’t that good. One sink (there are in the washroom) didn’t work and I had to wait. There was nothing in that lounge that spells class. Big fail.

Before our plane took off, I asked a flight attendant if we’d be flying over The Pyramids of Egypt. He wasn’t sure, so he asked the captain/pilot and he came back with a negative answer. I still positioned myself by the window side and hoped for a clear panoramic view of the desert.

And I was not disappointed.

The view from the top – Cairo to Amman was wonderful! The desert looked eerily magnificent up there—and it’s a very, very strange world for someone who flew for the first time in that continent!

Come, fly with me.

Not sure if this is the Red or the Dead Sea. If you know, shoot me a comment.
