It’s almost 3 PM. I have arrived at Giza. Came in the bus behind me. Had left from Alexandria at 12:30 PM. My bus ticket costed 60 Egyptian Pounds. The journey takes about 2 to 3 hours. The road is quite scenic on the way. Only until reaching Giza, it get’s a bit weird. Now I have to go to my booked hotel near the Pyramids. I have understood how to reach my destination. From there I can get a bus. In two to three Pounds, I can reach my hotel near the Pyramids. On one side of the Nile River is Giza and on the other side is Cairo, the capital of Egypt. Probably this is the main road, from where I’ll get the bus. Dangerous traffic!! This looks like a bus terminal. Probably, I’ll get the bus from here. Since college, this is the first time that I’m sitting on the last seat and travelling in public transport. It’s 3:30 PM right now. And in India, 7 PM. I so wished to eat the corn, no wonder how much is it for! Will reach in 10 minutes! This is a small bus, called the mini-bus here in Giza. So if you’re exploring the city in these buses, the fare ran range from 1 to 4 Egyptian Pounds. As per the gentleman sitting beside me, Vodafone works well here. My primary usage is of that of internet to stay connected on WhatsApp and Facebook. The Pyramids!! I have been recommended Vodafone. Let’s see how it goes with me. That was also a public bus, a bigger one. Fare ranges from 2.5 to 3.5 Egyptian Pounds. There are the Pyramids! My hotel is 570 meters from here. The application that I’m using is Maps.me. It’s an offline map application. Had downloaded it before reaching Egypt. I had just entered the name of the hotel and it has indicated the location. From here probably, half a kilometer. Will go by walking. Pyramids!! And this is the traffic jam of Giza! Need to be careful here in Egypt. People insist a lot. This man was troubling me! Here, there are Pyramids Inn Motel and Pyramids Hotel. I had booked the Motel. But a few people are constantly trying to take me to the hotel. This is a weird place. Four different names around the same building. So much confusion! These are the stairs. Came up through them. This is the corridor and this is my room. In Bali, I was staying in a resort. This time, I am not staying in a hostel. I’ll tell you why in some time. This room costed me 1,200 Indian Rupees. I have to pay downstairs. I have booked this only for 1 night. You can see the Pyramids from here. Had booked via Booking.com A basic room with all the necessary requirements. For the first night, I wanted to stay in a hotel. Then from the next few days, I’ll stay in hostels.Won’t be preferring couchsurfing on this trip. I’m on the terrace. Had seen some nice pictures on Booking.com of this hotel and the surroundings and the reviews were good too. The Egyptian Pyramids! Probably that’s another hotel. A lot of hostels, guesthouses and hotels around here. The 1,200 that I’m paying also includes the breakfast. It’s 11 AM and my second day in Egypt. Here’s my review of the hotel. Had booked it for 1,100 Indian Rupees through Booking.com Have checked out from here. Going to another place. Will be staying in Giza for today also. A few problems that’s why I’m shifting. WiFi was very poor. I couldn’t even see the comments on YouTube. Apart from that, I had to come to the reception for every small thing. And everyone was smoking! A very small bathroom, not at all good! The only good thing, it’s on the main road. It has a very nice view from the roof-top! A very bad thing, when I was making the payment yesterday, out of the 320 Egyptian Pounds that I paid, I was being given 20 back. And then being forced that I should give good ratings. Now I understand how this place earned a good rating on the website in spite of the poor services. Always remember that if something like this happens with you, do not listen to the people. Your reviews and ratings should be unbiased to help fellow travellers. They are not to please the hotel staff and the owners. How do I get away from this kid? Almost 1.1 kilometers from my last hotel. That man scolded the boy, so he ran away. A similar thing needs to be done when you see somebody troubling a foreign tourist in India. This looks so much like Rajasthan! This is the place where I’ll be staying today. This is the rooftop. Can see the Pyramids clearly! A lot of tourists here. My room is being arranged. I was interacting with a French tourist and hearing his Indian experiences. He is here from the last 5 days. Sit here, relax and interact with people from different countries and walks of life. He can speak Hindi! 100 Egyptian Pounds for 1.5 GB data & 150 Pounds for 3.5 GB data, Vodafone SIM. A bit salty, but it’s good. Since I am a foreigner, the rate for me is 120 Egyptian Pounds. For the locals, it is 10 Egyptian Pounds. He was happy to hear that I’m an Indian!
