Come Fly With Me

Linda Lou Burton posting about Cairo, Egypt from Little Rock, Arkansas – Hurry, hurry, zip the suitcase, check out. Today’s flight isn’t too bad, just a few hours. I’m flying Ethiad again, I didn’t realize when I booked my flight that they are headquartered in Abu Dhabi, right by the International Airport. It’s 1,480 miles from there to Cairo International (CAI) and then another 13 miles to my hotel, the Ramses Hilton. I’ll be flying over Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and maybe Jordan and the Suez Canal.

I’m not leaving Abu Dhabi till 2:30 this afternoon, so I have time to do just a little more looking around this blindingly bright city that sits beside this incredibly blue water. As usual, I hate to leave where I am. I wish I had another week, at least.

But guess what. I’m booked for an evening dinner cruise on the Nile tonight. That’s the longest river in Africa, remember?
