Return To Cairo

We flew by Egyptair from Luxor to Cairo. and returned to the hotel in which we had stayed on our arrival in Egypt. We visited the Egyptian Museum with its amazing exhibition of the treasure found in the New Kingdom tomb of King Tutenkhamen in the Valley of the Kings at Luxor. We also toured the Citadel and the two great Mosques there, the Bazaar and a Coptic Church, said to be the oldest Christian church in the world.
