We made it

It’s only 4.5 hours from London to Cairo. Deplaning and getting through immigration and customs was an adventure. Not only were we dealing with different norms for standing in line (you had Americans and Brits on one orderly extreme, the Chinese on the far opposite end, and the Egyptians somewhere in the middle), but the lines were worse than usual due to extra high security for the elections in two days (“The airport is in an emergency,” said our guide).

But we made it through safely and got to the hotel just fine. We’re at the Four Seasons with a spacious room and glorious feather pillows. We’ll find out in the morning whether we have any views…

Speaking of morning, we’ll be off bright and early to see the pyramids!

    Only 4.5 hrs! That’s great. The room looks comfy, indeed. Can’t wait to hear all about the pyramids and see the pics.
