Hey Ya'll. Its been a couple days. We've been busy. Went to see the Pyramids, the Sphinx, Memphis, to see the statue of Ramsees II, and to Sakkara to see the first pyramids built. Now were in Alexandria, We got here Sunday night late. Today we will see a little bit more here then Take the bus back to Cairo and then the sleeper train down to Aswan. As i type this i'm looking out the window atthe mediterrainen sea! best view 30 bucks a night has ever gotten me. Yesterday we went to see the Library here, its big, and cool. I think were gonna hit the greco roman musem before we leave, if i can figure out what time the bus leaves....lol.
We both like Alexandria, it seems very quiet and less touristy. Cairo makes it feel small even though there's something like 5 million people here, that less than 1/4 of Cairo!
Ohhh i almost forgot! Nadine has been entertaining the last couple days. She feel off a Camel on sunday and fell into the Sea yesterday!!! When the camel sits for you to get off he sort of just flops down on his knees then lowers his back side slowly. She wasn't prepared when he went down so she went down with him, the guy with us caught her so it was ok, don't worry i was laughing at her.
We sea food last night from Smakmak it was good. Sea Bass, calimari, shrip and a whole wack of other stuff. The bass was good, i didn't have the shrip or calimari, but the smile on Nadine's face said they were delish.
Thats all i got for now. We will put up some pics when we have wireless again, don't know when that'll be. Keep the messages coming and we will do the same bye for now.
love Ya'll

Hey, hope you were filming while Nadine fell off the camel! Then we all could share the joy! How do you fall into the sea?
The library; was it built by Alexander the Great?
