After breakfast we boarded our bus and traveled through the city and the suburbs of Cairo going 17 miles south to The Step Pyramid of Sakkara.  The following photos are of everyday life in Egypt. 

Bringing goods to market.  Remember I said traffic was something else?  This horse and cart compete for road space with our bus and other cars and trucks.
Corner market

 Young boys either delivering or picking up goods.
 Just a street scene.  Notice  the open air taxis and the donkey cart in the middle of the picture.
 A school
 The oasis ending.
The desert.  It was amazing.  The bus is driving through all these palm trees and greenery and then BAM!!! Sand.  It wasn't gradual at all.

Interesting views of the city streets. Horse and cart are my absolute favorite!
