In Egypt , I had a dream .

2017 In the summer ,20 year , Go to Egypt as an overseas volunteer . Different from traditional travel , I really feel the culture and customs of this country . Now listen to me slowly .

7 month 15 On the evening of the 8th, we set off from Guangzhou Baiyun Airport , Direct flight from Egypt to , about 11 Hours to Cairo Airport . The statue of the Pharaoh coming from the plane 、 The pyramid poster gives me a sense of reality in my trance " wow , I really came to this mysterious country !" I changed money at the airport and bought a phone card . I was about to contact the person in charge of the branch and saw that the Egyptian brother who came to pick me up was holding a sign with my name on it , In my heart , Everything is going well .

Egyptian brother sent me to Maadi 's apartment , It's said that the public order in the rich area is better . All my friends are going to Dahab Travel , I came back that night , So I met with my friends from other countries in the evening , Everybody's super enthusiastic and funny , The previous worries suddenly dissipated .

The daily life is to work in the daytime, and to be with my friends at night . Let's talk about my project first , Name is Lead Green, It's about protecting the environment , At work, from Monday to Wednesday , Actually work three to four hours a day , It's going to be different NGO Work . Sometimes I teach children how to protect the environment , I also teach some English about environmental protection , Sometimes it helps to transform the environment in places like welfare homes .

This is the situation of work . In fact, I spent most of my time playing with my friends , And travel . On weekdays, we usually go to the coffee shop to chat, watch football games or play games at home , Leisure and fun .

And little friends

Or with my friends

My favorite cafe , In the middle of Cairo, by the Nile . I like to sit there with the cool wind blowing , see flueka People are singing and dancing , Look at the Arab women with turbans beside them , Look at the carriages and cars on the bridge . I used to think about , Religion completely binds them , Isn't it boring to live like this ? After coming to Egypt , I found the opposite , The lovers on the bridge are whispering , People in the cafe watch football games together . Maybe it's because it's too hot during the day , The Egyptian people's nightlife is always very rich , At three o'clock in the morning, the streets of Cairo are still full of traffic .

Let's talk about my trip in Egypt , I went out with my friends on the rest day . First I went to the black and white desert , And then Luxor 、 Aswan and Alexander , And Cairo, of course .

The black and white desert tour is a branch organization , Two days and a night . Leaving Cairo at seven o'clock on the first morning , And head for the desert . All the way through the desert , Stop at a scenic spot to enjoy . I went to the black desert first , I always wonder why it's called black desert ? How can the sand be black ? When I got there, I realized that it was because the stones in the desert were all black , The name of white desert comes from the same reason . I watched the desert sunset in the evening , No, " The smoke is straight ", But the setting sun is really round , In a desert setting , The sunset is really amazing ! The night camp is already in the Sahara , The bonfire party came to a climax , Foreign partners are good at singing and dancing , With the music of Arab style , It's super sensational .

Luxor's trip to Aswan , Five days and four nights . One night in Aswan , To Nubian village , It is said that there are 100000 crocodiles , Nubian worshipped crocodiles as gods ( But, um , I only saw a crocodile ). Don't say the , Directly above !

We went down the Nile to Luxor by boat . There are a lot of temples here, King's Valley , Because I didn't know the history of Egypt in advance , So this trip is to see a pile of stones . Except for the temple of Luxor 、 Queen's Valley and the temple of Queen Hatshepsut , I forgot all the other names ( embarrassed ), Let's go straight to the picture above .

Next is Alexander , It's my favorite city in Egypt . The reason is that it's really beautiful . The blue of the Mediterranean is deeply rooted in the hearts of the people , The adults and children in Alexandria are at ease , There are also Lishan library which contains a small part of human civilization .

Look far ahead

Cairo . It's casual in Cairo , Almost every day I go out for a walk , When I'm bored, I go to some interesting places , I've been to a lot of places . The National Museum of Egypt 、 Ali Mosque 、 Saladin castle , Of course, there are pyramids and so on ( See the picture below ).

Let's talk about the impression of Cairo . Buddies and their partners make complaints about each other , what Egyptian time、 Egyptian style La , It's just Egyptians who are slow , I'm a little inefficient. I just like being late , In retrospect, I still like enthusiastic Egyptians . And the last thing I like most is the streets of Cairo , There's loess dust everywhere , Finally gave up brushing shoes , Wearing flip flops every day in the streets of Cairo . And then there is the price ! price ! What I miss most is the price there ! It's really cheap !
