Day 15 Back to Cairo

Driving for about three hours from Alexandria to Cairo, we saw scenery from the bus. These white blocks are massive apartment buildings. The trend is to move from inner city to outskirts, which are much more modern.  A varied terrain, but mostly sand. 

Day 14 Alexandria

Today we visited the catacombs, which were first built for a wealthy family but then became used by the common people.We walked down several levels to reach the tombs. The tombs show a combination of Egyptian, Hellenic and Roman influences, showing Anubis and Horus in an embalming scene. Combinations of Roman and Egyptian imagery.
