Relatives from Winnipeg!

Our first group of international guests were cousins from not only Winnipeg, but our old neighborhood - 3 blocks from our old house.  They have just finished a 3 month trip to Thailand and Nepal and got a free stopover in Cairo.

Here they are with Arthur outside of the Egyptian Museum.

We weren't allowed to take cameras into the Museum, 
so one of our guests got out a sketch pad and started working. 
 (Hmmm. I wonder who took this photo... and with what...)

Cousins on a felluca on the Nile.

No trip to Egypt is complete without time at the pyramids of Giza.

Climbing is allowed in one section.

We had a lot of fun with them.
The day they left and we returned to our flat, 
it was quiet, empty and big.
We missed them.

But with fewer people around using electronic devices.... 
the wifi was much faster!
