On the 3rd of March of 1980 we spent a day in and around Cairo Egypt after a wonderful cruise from Crete to Egypt. Then several years later compliments of the Air Force I spent a week at the Holiday Inn, Cairo. Both of these trips were filled with exciting and different experiences which left lasting memories.
