Postcard from Cairo

Sunday, April 15, 2012
























Hola Lovelies,

It feels so great to be posting this homage to Cairo!! Reliving a not so distant past comes quite easily, especially when it made such an impression on me. One week ago I was standing on top of the Cairo Tower overlooking the grand city divided by the Nile. I have had dreams of visiting this place my whole life and to finally experience it felt completely natural and yet entirely surreal. Wandering through a post revolution Cairo felt equally exhilarating and enlightening. I couldn't help but feel humbled by its enormity and overwhelming sense of national pride.

Climbing the pyramids was otherworldly. However, climbing the pyramids in a sandstorm was just pure hostility lol. I spent most of my time in Giza crying just to rid the dust from my eyes. I'm not sure that I will ever return to this city but I know that it will forever live in my memory. I also know that the trip would not have been the same had I visited before January 2011. I feel honored that I was able to witness a Cairo in transition. I feel even more fortunate that I was able to be within arms reach of every major sight due to the lower tourism rates.

This postcard is just the first of many that I hope to share from this adventure. I hope at the very least it encourages people to go and experience Egypt for themselves. Stay tuned for many more photos!!

Much love,
Meag xx

  4. One of my dreams is to visit Egypt and the pyramids, but although it's so near to were I live I haven't got the chance to go yet. Your pictures are one more reason for me to believe it's one of the most beautiful places to be.

  5. We travellers are in very hard circumstances. If we say nothing but what has been said before us, we are dull and have observed nothing. If we tell anything new, we are laughed at as fabulous and romantic. Cheap Flights to Cairo
