Egypt has something that marks you forever.
It is a country with rural areas that have been receiving tourists for centuries and heir customs and relationship with them is not far from what the traveler could find a century ago (if we ignore all the temples and villages that are no longer in their original locations after the construction of the Nile dams).
Cairo, is something else, bustling, dirty and overcrowded, its limits respect, for a few meters, the place where the majestic pyramids are located. Moving away from the hustle and bustle to find the incredible step pyramid of Saqqara, the first. A little further, in Dahshur, inside a military base, is the red pyramid and in the bent pyramid (for me, an essential visit if you want to see how was a pyramid with its cover almost intact).
In short, a magical country to which, without any doubt, you will want to return.
