Top good and bad things about Egypt
Have you ever heard about Egypt?
Have you Ever visited it?
Well, today lets talk about it and lets gather what is good and what is bad there.Lets start with the GOOD things i noticed there:
1- Egypt is in the middle east having the shores on both the Mediterranean sea and the Red sea. It also has the long river "the Nile" which passes through most of its cities. This is not a geographical lesson but this gives Egypt wonderful seen and amazing weather too.
2- At the Red sea, one can enjoy diving or can rent a glassy bottom boat to enjoy the scene of the sea bottom with different types of creatures and fishes.
3- At Giza, Luxor and Aswan you can take an exciting tour through the ancient Egyptian development by visiting the great PYRAMIDS, some famous temples and museums.
4- There are also other exciting places to visit there specially at night as Khan-El-Khalili where you can buy memorizing gifts.
5- Most of people there are helpful with a smile on their faces. They also have high sense of humor.
6- Egyptian food is delicious, you have to try "molokhya", "mahshi", "shish kabab" and some others I could not memorize.
The great pyramids
Now lets go through the BAD things I noticed:
1- crowded and random traffic, even the ambulance can not pass through.
2- Poverty is nearly everywhere specially when tourists go a little bit away from their guide, they are surrounded with poor children asking for tips!!
3- Some people exploits tourists specially the cap drivers (they call it "taxi") and ask more money than deserved.
4- Trashes are thrown on streets even if there is a trash basket near it!!
Another thing is that my visit was not so long and I could not spend enough time at each place or to visit more places there but in general it was an interesting vacation.
