On deplaning in Cairo, we met a smiling round Egyptian in a professional suit holding a yellow sign with the logo of “All One World Egypt Tours”.
He introduced himself as Amir from American Express, then whisked us past the long lines to a creepy looking, bored man who looked at our passports and waved us past.
After he retrieved our bags for us we followed him out into the thick Cairo night air.
He escorted us to a small van and we plunged headlong into the busy Cairo streets. Amir pointed out the sights zipping by while the driver, blissfully ignoring lane markers and traffic signals in the famously chaotic Egyptian traffic.
