    Hi Mark,
    hi Ton,

    well there is a lot of work waiting for me ;-)
    It's very curious:

    The whole year is normal business but as more the end of the year comes as more I have to do ;-)
    I think that our customers will have to waste the rest of their budgets.

    But it is o.k. - I would like to drive the same car as Wolf-Man is doing ;-)

    @Wolfgang
    Will you join us at the christmas party?
    I wll have an unforgetable present for you.
    You will not believe it ;-)

    Hi Wolfgang,

    Egypt is a wonderful country. I was there with Bea and my two ladies two years ago. I consider you to go snorchling and diving.

    We have alway met wonderful friendly people there.

    Give me a call whenever you are back from holiday.
    I wish to drive your baby ;-)

    PS: I have driven mine a few minutes before.
    Hm, every time it is something special for me to enter the car, plug in the key, start the engine and hear the wonderful sound of eight cylinders ;-)

    Hey Wolfgang you'll love it.
    Its a crazy city, but totally alive. The worst thing about it is the pollution and dirt...oh and the mad taxi drivers.

    You have to visit the standard tourist places..the pyramids...the Egyptian Museum..the Kahn El Kallili and the Citadel.

    I've got a friend out there which was great for getting to know all those places the locals visit but that the tourist don't know. I'll get together a list of restaurants and places worth visiting for you. There was also a lot to learn from her about how to avoid getting riped off by the taxi drivers for instance. I'll put an email together for you.

    I'm assuming if you're there for 2 weeks that you'll be in different places in Egypt not just Cairo? I'm already jealous...I landed last night and getting into work this morning was soooo hard :)
    See ya
    Simon

    Hi Wolfgang,

    Debs and I spent 10 days in Egypt in 2001. We flew to Abu Simbel in the south and then worked our way down the Nile to Cairo, stopping at Aswan, Luxor (Elephant Island) and Thebes.

    We loved it and had a great time. On our next visit we want to do Sharm Al Shaik and/or Ras Mohammed to do some good scuba diving.

    ENJOY!! MARK

    Wolf,

    Buy the "Lonely Planet" guide to Egypt - it's the best IMHO. Travelling in a jeep may be a bit challenging as you can only cross certain areas in military convoys. We found it more convenient to catch flight & trains and then to use taxis - it was faster, more efficient and DEFINITELY less frustrating! ALWAYS negotiate a price with taxi drivers up front! Even when you do this, be prepared to be screwed!! ;)

    Excellent place - I love it! :D

    Cheers, MARK

    I definitely agree about the Lonely Planet...they're a must for any travel abroad. They also say about setting the price up front for taxis...which is probably the safest way to do it. No arguments at the end.

    However, after a few taxi journeys, and some advice from friends the way to do it as "einheimische" is to give them what you think it was worth. They will always ask for more but the secret is not to reply, just walk away. That means get out of the taxi before you pay. If he follows you or calls the police ;) then perhaps you gave too little. It takes a bit of guts cos its not the european way of paying someone.

    See ya
    Simon

    Wolfgang, its all a learning experience...enjoy doing it wrong a few times...I did ;)

    Hi Wolfgang,

    Right about NOW you should be having your first Egyptian taxi experience!! ;) I tried all strategies - not negotiating a price, agreeing a price up front, paying what I thought the journey was worth, etc - and INVARIABLY ended up having a shouting match!

    Enjoy yourself Wolfgang...and watch your blood pressure! ;)

    Cheers, MARK

    Wolfdesertrat,

    Quad biking in the desert should be awesome - I am envious. It's a pity that you don't dive as the Red Sea is a top location.

    Mark,
    yep Quad biking is real, real fun! We have done this in Senegal 2 years ago and in Gran Canaria. Its a 5 hours trip in the desert and we have booked this tour 2 times. They are offering 2 different trips in the mountains and desert.
    About diving, I know its a pity not diving in the red sea...I prefer jet-skiing here and like to eat (and not see) all this beautiful sea food.
