Today we are in Alexandria, the city that Alexandria the great founded. The first thing that we found, that Alexandria is much cleaner than Cairo. The city seems much more modern than Cairo as well. Our tour guide on ez Alexandria said that the governor of the city was responsible for the cleanup. The traffic was just as bad as we wound our way thru the city looking at monuments and going to the site where the lighthouse of Alexandria once stood.
We had a folk loric show from Egypt before we sailed that included a not so good belly dancer but a wonderful twirling dervish. He was a guy that was dressed in wonderful costumes that. Twirled around for at least 15 minutes without falling over.. The next couple of days are at sea, then we arrive back in Rome and continue on our next part of our wonderful trip.
