This was a small and very old tomb that we got to go into, the tomb of Pharoh Zoser whom Imhotep built the first pyramid for.

Day 1-3 Egypt - Cairo, Sakkara, and Memphis
We are back from our trip to Egypt, Israel, and Jordan. We were part of a Fun For Less tour group but we got to Cairo a day early from the rest of the tour group. Day 1 and 2 were spent in travel (actually took 2 days) from Seattle to Chicago to Amman to Cairo.
The streets are very crowded and the cars don't pay any attention to lanes. There was a lot of honking and the cars almost touched each other. There are no crossing areas so people just walk right across right through the traffic (and don't even stop) weaving through moving cars. We even gave it a try and we didn't get hit.
