The plane was rising high. From the top of the sky, Spain looked like a small island surrounded by water. Suddenly, that marine surface mixed with brown tones disappeared completely from our horizon and other different landscapes appeared through the windows. The journey began to get heavy. After six hours of flight, we finally reached the city of Cairo.

Egypt made its way between mountains of sand and humble half-built buildings with flirty vaults. I remember that stifling heat and intense humidity that barely let us breathe.

We arrived at the hotel where we would spend our first two nights. Sheraton Hotel, in the heart of the city and very close to the Nile River, is one of the hotels most chosen by tourists to stay during their leisure or business trips.

We stayed on the fourteenth floor. Through the windows of the room, the dawn was quite calm. We contemplate in harmony a city that sleeps completely waiting for the birth of a new day. You can't hear the voices of merchants selling subsidies or the native instruments of those street musicians. The exhausting life in a place where the dripping of foreigners is constant takes a break at the end of the day. We appreciate that peace and tranquility reflected on the calm waters of the Nile River.

Visit to the Pyramids of Egypt

The next morning we went early to meet our guide. We verify why Egypt is one of the most important cradles of civilization. Poverty is mixed with the scent of a relic city in any of the places we travel. Visit the Egyptian Art Museum It involves entering a sensory paradise, recalling a time when Egyptian civilization was the center of the universe. Although Westerners unfairly looted much of the heritage and took numerous relics to the various museums in Europe, Egypt still has a large collection under its belt.
