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 Tamer 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, and happy.


he museums at Cairo were crowded. We were given to understand that at any point of the day it is crowded. Go through the video carefully. Warning – before you touch the link – STOP. Ask yourselves. Are you looking for some trivia or entertainment? This is not your cup of tea. This is a lot of information for History buffs, for keen minds, thinking brains and learning individuals.

Recently I had been to Egypt and have collated some of the things that impressed me. I have put this in a video format so that it can be viewed by one and all.
