Cape Town to Goodwood Day 34: Cairo Here We Come!

Says Mary Heath:
"Near Cairo itself the air got much colder, coming in, I suppose, from the sea, and over the hills of the south it was very bumpy.The first sign I had that I was nearing my journey's end was the pyramid of Sakhara lying on the western bank, and a few minutes later, the stately piles of the greater Pyramids came into view, and then some 6,000 ft beneath me I saw the houses, the domes, the minarets and the winding streets of the greatest city in Africa."
