So i am in Egypt

Our plane was suppose to take off 4 am in the morning, so we prepared our stuff and gone by car to the airport at around 10 pm (early much??). It took us 2 hours to reach the airport, as soon as we reached there we finished our business early on, there was an internet connection at the airport, but it was on the main hall and not the waiting lobby that we stayed in most of the time, so i was only able to tweet once :d

We waited until 4:30 to ride the plane, the lobby was kind of empty when we first reached it, but as the takeoff time draws near, it got really crowded with Egyptians! going back to their homes certainly, I spent most of these hours waiting at the lobby playing Pokemon Heart Gold (i just got it, and downloaded the soon to end event the legendary wish Pokemon Jirachi, by the time of this post i think it has already ended) I got an ubber pokemon at the start of the game! lol XD

We took the EgyptianAir lines.
*image of the pillow*
/btw/ this is a pillow.

when we boarded the plane the dawn was already welcoming us.
*picture of the plane's wing*
/I got a nice seat, next to the window, you can see our plane's emblem on the curve of the wing too.

We spent alot of time on the plane, and it didn't take off yet, i think it was around 5:15 am that we actually took off.

since they didn't allow us to open any electronic device anymore, i couldn't take a picture of the breakfast that they gave us, overall it was actually pretty good, they gave us fries eggs mixed with spinach (i have never eaten this before, imagine my horror when they gave me a pale-green fried egg!) with bread, jam, butter, cheese and fruit salad(the best part!).
To be honest, i never ate plane food that was actually below average before in my life, all the stuff i experienced were above average, luck i guess?

the journey took us 2 hours and 45 minutes, I wanted to sleep but i would never be able to if there was no bed in sight!! :( I was never been able to sleep in cars, buses and the like...

So we finally reached Cairo! i won't bother you with boring stuff about waiting in line and such, so let me tell you about one of the weirdest thing i have ever saw,
I actually saw a Japanese couple in real life! I did hear them talk and i am pretty sure that they spoke Japanese (anime power!) but that was not what i was referring to when i mentioned the /weird/ sight...
the lady has an extremely long hair, like really REALLY long! it reached her feet!! i didn't take a pic of her(that would be impolite!) so i will describe it the best way i could.. see Princess Zelda? more specifically her Twilight Princess/Smash Bros. Brawl design? she had the EXACT same hair style on the back, except the braid part, she split her braid into three braids! everyone at the lobby was looking at her!!

It looked kinda like this...

After that i got to see some of the planes, and it caught my eyes how there were different emblems on each plane(i have no idea if they belong to different companies of not, but they were all labeled under EgyptAir) An Eagle Egyptian one and a cat/dog one, what caught my attention was how these represent different old Egyptian figures,

I am not an expert on this but the one we boarded had a design similar to what the pokemon Lucario designed after, oh so i was riding Lucario airlines all along!! XD XD


Got our stuff, and a taxi driver stole our luggage in order for us to use his car(they ALWAYS do this)... and we gave in, too tired to argue..
That driver was a chatter box, and a freaking thief! when we reached our hotel he wanted 100$!! "oh this covers for the parking area and stuff.." shut up! it was obvious that he wanted to get as much money out of us as he could for the sole fact that we are from the Gulf... Gulf countries = oil= rich people, yeah sorry but it doesn't work like this with us! :\
We only gave him 30$, seriously all the Arabian countries has this mind set about the Gulf countries, we are rich rich RICH... sorry but most of us are not...seriously we wont get ripped off if we went to a non Arabian country... :|
