雅典 (Athens)

sunny 35 °C

只两个小时,我们已经从中东飞到了欧洲。最大的感觉 – 我又回归了文明社会。走了一天路的脚再也不会黑的像讨饭的;洗澡水再也不是黑色的;厕所没有了臭味,而且还有厕纸和肥皂;连湿纸巾擦完脸都还看得出本来的颜色。

有名的景点除了废墟还是废墟,这个才是欧洲的开始!

狭窄安静的街道是我的最爱。

市中心的墙面上有很多有趣的壁画。真希望能够把它们搬回我家。

Athens - Acropolis and a modern city

sunny 35 °C

Athens was nice, the Acropolis is a massive complex and the related ruins were also impressive, though we've been spoiled by the things we saw in Turkey, Syria, and Jordan.

The rest of the city is just charming, with narrow cobblestone streets and a lot of unique shops and good affordable food (souvlaki, spinach pies and gyros).

首都开罗(Cairo)

sunny 40 °C

去埃及就必须去看金字塔和狮身人面像。不过看过了也如此罢了。没有我想象的高,也没有感觉特别神秘。只能说:been there, done that罢了。连拍照也提不起太多的兴趣。

值得一提的是我终于克服了动物恐惧症,单独其上了骆驼
20090820_318.jpg

眼看后面的骆驼头就要碰到我的脚了,还是忍不住地提起了双腿,尖叫起来。

同行的团员当然不能错过这么好的镜头

再来回顾一下我骑骆驼的英姿!

比起金字塔,我还是喜欢开罗的集市和旅游区之外的居民。

当然,我们最爱的还是市集旁的水烟店和美味的甘蔗汁。

Cairo - in the city

sunny 37 °C
View Around the world ın 8 months on chrisvasil's travel map.

Our travels through Cairo were among the highlights of our Egypt experience. We had originally planned to change hotel after the first day, but the place we went that was supposed to be "5 minutes taxi, 30 minutes walk" from the hotel was actually over half an hour away by taxi. We were already in town, so we spent the entire day in town and came back at night (and saved half a night's hotel by agreeing with another couple whose room had 2 singles that each couple would get a single bed and we'd pay half the hotel cost).

We started at a souq, which had the most impressive displays of people carrying stuff on their head,
20090820_385.jpg

as well as an unexpected wood factory (a rural factory in a crowded shopping district)
20090820_382.jpg

and the shops and crowds you would expect.

20090820_401.jpg

Unexpectedly, on the street just outside the souq there appeaered to be a sale on sheep.
20090820_404.jpg

We subsequently wandered into a fancier area, kind of a gated community that was really scenic (in an urban way) with some shops.

The following day we spent a couple hours at a local shisha bar, smoking the good stuff (flavored tobacco) from massive water pipes. The local kids enjoyed the show, as women don't smoke so Sue was probable the first woman they saw smoking.

阿斯旺 (Aswan)

sunny 41 °C

继续往南便到了Aswan. 我不知道怎样来形容这个城市-

绿洲水乡
20090820_251.jpg

沙漠
20090820_195.jpg

绿洲和沙漠比邻而居,相宜的章。
20090820_192.jpg
20090820_247.jpg

因为这里已经深入非洲的大陆,所以当地人其实已经是中东人和黑人的混血。他们保留着自己的方言和习俗。

我们有幸来到了当地人家吃晚饭。餐厅/会客厅,地面是细细的黄沙铺成的,踩上去温暖又柔软。女主人正张罗着给我们端茶送水烧饭。

男主人则和客人坐在一起,跟我们介绍房子和村庄的历史.

乘晚饭来没有上来,我们到处参观了一番

厕所外面养了两只鳄鱼。一听有动静,就张开血盆大嘴。

烘面包的灶头 228. 烤盘是用牛粪和沙子晒干的(听了真促进食欲!)
晚饭: 面包,鸡肉,土豆,西红柿/黄瓜沙拉。味道一般。

第二日:坐上帆船,泛舟尼罗河!
