Thanks, guys.
Well, a little info?

I & my husband have been in Egypt for nearly 3 years so far. Sometimes I love it and sometimes I absolutely hate it :mrgreen:
Visited Luxor 4 times and really love the West Bank, but the hassles of the East Bank really get on my nerves!!

Love to go back there for the 5th time but no plan yet. Before that, I need to convince my husband though. He really got ticked off by the caleche & taxi drivers and swore never to go back there again :|

Hi Silvermagpie, I hope you enjoy posting here. So have you lived in Cairo all your time in Egypt. I always found Cairo to be quite a stressful place to be even though it is an exciting and interesting city. Luxor is so very peaceful after Cairo, even though it has the added hassle of the taxi and caleche trying to make a living.

Welcome to the forum !
I feel the same about Cairo as Sue, I do find it quite stressful but it usually is stressful because if we go to Cairo it's either for something specific (shopping,Enbassy) or we end up walking for miles trying to find places :oops:
I know what you mean about loving it and hating too ! (living there) it used to have that effect on me when I lived in Luxor :lol: infact it still does have that effect on me and I only visit now ;)

Yes, I agree Cairo is a stressful place... but quite an interesting place as well. The pollution in really bad though. :( Fortunately, we live in a suburb area so it's not as bad as in downtown.
