My friend pick me up at my hotel to spend the day in Alexandria. You have lot of thing that you can do in Alex but I didn’t care going anywhere there except stay in some place and look at the sea. Just that. That blue sea.
Alexandria It’s like 3 hours from Cairo. I remember a lot of little girls in the streets because I think it was the last day of school. So there was much people on the streets. We stop in a restaurant, in the street, to eat a typical Egyptian breakfast.
After that, as you can see on the pictures we went around and look at the sea. It was so blue. I was in Alexandria! I still remember sending a voice note to my mom: “Mom finally I’m in Alex! After so many years dreaming about this place, finally I’m here”.
If you are in Alexandria definitely you need to go to the “Citadel of Qaitbay”. It’s a castle. Like a defensive fortress considered one of the most important in the Mediterranean Sea. And it’s pretty too. You have like “windows” where you can see the whole sea and the city. It’s an awesome place. I went to Europe, and there you have a lot of castles but I didn’t see a castle like that. You must go there if you are planning on going to Egypt.
After the Citadel of Qaitbay, right next to, we went to a museum of mummified fish. I would just say that was a weird place and really cheap. Yeah I didn’t like it.
We walked a lot. That’s the only thing that mattered for me in that moment. Walk and look at the sea. We were really tired. And it was so hot that day.
It was like 4 pm and we were having lunch at same place in the downtown. I ate pasta. Yeah, pasta in Egypt. I have so many problems with food, the only thing I ate there was just pizza and pasta. Damn bell right?
It was like 6 pm and it was almost night. We went to some place there in the beach where literally you can seat at the sand and drink tea and smoke shisha. Was the best part of the day. The weather was perfect and I was sitting in a table in the beach drinking Egyptian tea, listening Egyptian music and smoking shisha. Could that be the perfect way to end the day? I know, I miss going to many places there. Like the famous library. But I didn’t have enough time. Too many things for just one day. Another place I would go next time.
I can define Alexandria like the perfect place to live in. I should move there.
