We woke up early and headed for the Taba Border which would take us into Egypt. We met Moussa, our Egyptian Guide, who would be with us until left Egypt for Jordan ten days later Friday was basically a travel day. It was a 7 hour coach ride across the Sinai to Cairo. Saturday, we visited the Pyramids of Giza, a papyrus factory and the Coptic Christian community in Old Cairo which included visits to Christian shrine and the Coptic Museum.
