Monday, Feb 6th, London
After an evening watching English television, topped off by late-night Superbowl, we checked out of the Heathrow Holiday Inn and returned to the airport. We took the bus back to the airport, and claimed a comfortable cushy sofa chair in one of the lounges. It’s now 3pm, and we’re waiting for our boarding gate to be posted on the list of departures.
Everyone who asks where we’re going expresses some alarm when hearing our answer. We tell them that we’ll be with a highly-proficient tour company, and won’t be spending much time in the areas where there has been trouble. But we don’t really know what to expect of either the original tour design, or the conditions in Cairo.
It’ll be an adventure, and we’ve always enjoyed a little bit of chaos.
