This photo was taken by my then-10 year old son,from the top of the Cairo Tower.You can view part of downtown Cairo and the Nile.
I`ve lived half my life in my home-country,Hungary,and the other half in my adopted-home country,Egypt.I`m new on the virtualtourist site and just figuring out what to do around here,so will be updating regurarly,as time permits.
I also love postcards,and some of you were so kind to send me some,i`ll be trying to upload them here.As for now i`m only into virtual travelling,with so much going on in my life that I dont have the time or money to actually travel.
So thank you so much to all of you who help me `visit` your beautiful countries through the cards you send.
The Cairo Tower was built from 1956 to 1961,on the top there is an observation deck and a circling restaurant.Its 187 metres high,43 metres higher than the Great Pyramid of Giza, which stands some 15 km to the southwest.You can actually see the pyramids from the top of the tower,if u're lucky enough and there is no smog,the skies are clear.
