Location: Salma Hotel, Cairo, Egypt

MapHi all - latest update from Cairo

I've just finished my Jewels of Egypt tour. Group were great except for one very old bird who was a bit of a pain in the bum, still they say it's character building don't they? Just vegging in hotel room after last night dinner - meeting a few of them tomorrow morning and then off to the infamous Mugamma building to renew my visa. Totally crazy place with about 10 staff to every customer, although most of them are ladies who sit filing their nails and gossiping while choosing to ignore the pleading looks we give them when going to retrieve our passports. Then off to get my Jordan visa, which thankfully is a much more straightforward process. I'm off to Jordan on my next tour so need to get all the paperwork in order.

Week off then 4 week Jordan loop and then my sister and friend are visiting, in quick succession, so I'll have 6 weeks on the go, I'll be knackered by the end!

This group were fantastic - got pretty much my best reviews and tips ever so it's all good.

Better get some sleep, up early tomorrow. Hope the weather wherever you are is good - we had 45 degrees last week, hooray summer is here!
