1. When I was in second grade I went to Egypt on a 8 day vacation trip with my grandparents. From Sofia airport we flew to the Athens and then landed in Cairo. During my trip I had the amazing opportunity to see everything - the Pyramids, magnificent temples, tombs, museums, we had lunch next to the Sphinx, we went to the largest museum(Museum of Cairo) and saw Tutankhamun's real mask, we saw mummies, learned the whole process of making a papyrus(and bought some with Nefertiti and The Tree of Life), we visited beautiful places like markets, works of architecture, buildings, restaurants, we went on a boat trip through Nile, I enjoied the clean and beautiful beaches of Red sea, made paintings with egyptian children, ate watermelon on the sea shore, met interesting people from all over the world, drowned in city lights of the living city, which illuminated palms, squares and fountains, I visited a lot of amazing shops for hand made jewelry, oils, souvenirs of Egyptian gods and symbols, amphorae and perfume shops with rich history, we watched the sunset at the desert, saw a mirage, went on a desert Safari, rode a camel, spent a night of crazy singing, dancing and eating around the fire with a bunch of Bedouins, tasted the amazingly delicious food they made and enjoied buffet breakfasts with different Egyptian dishes every day, I witnessed closely how a real Pita Bread was made(and even fed the camels with it), I managed to "touch" the amazing history, architecture and love of life the vibrant Cairo has and at the end it all remained in the photos and videos, left after this amazing adventure of my life... I would give everything to go back there right now - already grown up - and experience this all over again.(I may write more about my trip back then soon)
