Hello!

Hello!
Hi! I'm Shabana. I live in Bahrain. I'm a businesswoman by day and a fitness instructor by night. I believe that dressing up is the easiest way of loving yourself, and this blog is where I journal my outfits and my life. If you'd like to know more, click on the About Me tab on top. I hope you enjoy my blog!
                            

Cairo- Part I


I was in Cairo, Egypt, last week for 5 days. I was sent there for training as Peugeot's Regional Training Centre is in Cairo. So I was busy from 9-4, but I did manage to see quite a lot of the city and most importantly, I visited the Pyramids. As promised, here are the pictures!

Unknown Soldier Memorial

 Citadel - I didn't get the chance to see this from the inside, but I definitely will the next time.

The Nile

National Papyrus Centre: I was shown how papyrus is made by a live demonstration and I got to buy a papyrus with my name in hieroglypics.


The Pyramids and Sphinx in Giza
This was the most awe-inspiring part of the trip. I was in the Sahara Desert, riding a horse with my guide who explained all about the Pyramids and Sphinx. 
 There are 9 pyramids in all: 3 that belong to the grandfather, father and son, and 6 smaller ones belonging to the wives.
 The largest one: the Pyramid of Khufu. 
The Pyramid of Khufu is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World which is intact today. Being speechless with fascination is an understatement.

The Sphinx
The Sphinx is a sculpture made from one piece of stone. The face of a man, hair of a woman and the body of a lion, it symbolizes wisdom, beauty and strength. The guide tells me that Napoleon Bonaparte on his mission to destroy Egypt fired a cannon at the Sphinx and was only able to break its nose.
 

Part II coming up...
