Day of Rest in Giza
We arrived in Giza on Sunday night so that we would have a day of rest before the tour's first briefing and event. My sister is an accomplished rider and she rented a huge, white Arabian stallion (and a guide) and went racing around the pyramids and Sphinx for two hours today. The shopkeeper in the jewelry shop at the Mena House Oberoi set up the booking. He wanted me to ride also, so he offered me a sweet horse; I said “no thanks.” so then he offered me a blind horse; I said “No Thanks!” Then my sister offered to race around me on the blind horse while riding her strong and speedy 7-year-old Arabian; I said “I’m outta here!” I had a great lunch while she rode around the desert and the pyramids for 2 hours. My sister said that she had always wanted to ride like the wind on a big Arabian, so now she is happy. (She went swimming next at the hotel's pool.) The day is lovely and I am expecting the tour to be great now that my jet lag is OK. I'm told that there were 24 people on this departure and we meet up in the morning.
