Three years ago a group of friends and I took a huge trip, and Cairo, Egypt was one of the stops. We were there in August, in the midst of all of the political unrest. Two weeks before our scheduled arrival a clash broke out in Cairo outside of the courtroom where former president Mubarack was on trial. I can’t say it was the most stress-free time to visit the country. We went through a metal detector before we could enter our hotel. When I jokingly asked what it was we were being screened for, the officer succinctly answered, bombs. Although serious, his attitude was nonchalant. As if this was everyday activity in his world. Maybe it was, but it certainly gave us pause. Cairo wasn’t our favorite, but it was the most interesting leg of our trip.
