    My driver in Cairo picked me up right on time. He spoke English and was delightful. We stopped half way for coffee, croissant and a toilet break. My guide in Alexandria was Eman. She was born and raised in Alexandria with such knowledge and was happy to be able to share all throughout my two days. I asked for an Egyptian lunch so she took me to a wonderful restaurant. I loved everything she ordered. My small boutique hotel was quite comfortable. The driver which returned me to Cairo did not speak English so I was able to just sit back, reflect on this adventure and enjoy the ride.
