It's been real Egypt

IMG_20180325_180559026.jpg Yesterday I left Egypt to fly to Hong Kong. Learning that you can't take anything for granted in Egypt, I left about 4 hours before the flight left. I learned that the Cairo airport, although it has McDonald's, Burger King, Starbucks, and duty free shops, there is no men's bathroom with toilet paper in it, and I checked 3 stalls in 3 different bathrooms.
I hated Egypt after a couple of days. The hawkers never give up. And it is annoying. Typical conversation:
Me: No thanks
Hawker: Take you all around
Me: no thanks
Hawker: take you to Giza pyramids, and citadel
Me: no thank you
Hawker: real cheapy
Hawker: guess how much?
Me: NO!!
It wouldn't end there. It would keep going on, time and time again.
