A very large city without many natural areas.


Africa: Egypt and Ethiopia

12/31/2010: We started our journey with a two hour stopover in London. We took the tube to Hammersmith Bridge where we spent our time at a pub before returning to the airport for our flight to Cairo.

2/1/2011: We escaped the Egypt revolution, and we landed in Birmingham Airport early in the morning. From there, we had to take a train into London. We visited a friend of ours, and we walked around a bit in the center of London before catching our flight back the next day.

Next Visit (Cairo: 1/1/2011)
