Egypt tour

Some old, some young,

Some from Mumbai,

Some from Pune,

A few from Bengalore & Kochi,

A few from Gujarat & Goa,

Not to leave the gulf countries,

Made up a group that visited Egypt.

Team leader Yogesh,

With a smiling disposition,

And a soft demeanor,

Needs to be a little more assertive,

And deal with the critical issues.

The guide Tamir was good,

Tarique was jovial.


A few IT professionals and doctors,

The whistler who brought in mirth,

The singer who enthralled the audience,

The lady who helped in collecting tips,

The tiny tots with a hunger to learn,

The reluctant astrologer,

Defined the group profile.

The eager beavers,

The questioning minds,

A handful of calm and collected senior citizens,

The two young historians

Mothered by my room partner,

I had a delightful time,

A home away from Home.


The last hotel that we stayed in,

Was awesome but not user-friendly,

Scaling down the stay standards,

Might have saved a few rupees.

A visit might have been worthwhile,

My feeling at the end of the trip,

A Time well spent, contented, happy.
