It’s great when you have friends visit that have visited Cairo before. They’ve done all the top tourist sites of Cairo, so you can concentrate on having a good time.
When my friend Juliette came to stay, we decided to go ham it up at the Pharaonic Village. I’ve blogged briefly about the Pharaonic Village before. Suffice it to say that we had a great time… but I’m not sure our guide did!
The best bit was dressing up in Pharaonic clothing and posing for pictures. The staff take it very seriously. We tried, but couldn’t.
I’m sure you agree I make a pretty rocking Ramesses, and that my battle face is enough to strike terror into all enemies of the Pharaohs, whether alive or dead. I’m not known as pharaonick for nothing, you know!
Note: Yep, this is a photo of a photo. We couldn’t get a digital version of the original. And I know it’s Saturday today, and it’s meant to be Photo Friday, but hey, duties as Pharaoh have to take precedence over blogging.
