We had a brilliant day at Giza,

After we had a walk to the Pyramids, Helen decided that she wanted to ride a horse to them as well, she being a very competent rider & myself only having had a bad experience with a Shire horse (Its a long story) , I let her go it alone.

Whilst she was away I sat & chatted to Ashraf, our driver about life & then the local stable boys came out & were very entertaining.

When Helen returned it was near lunch time & we were invited by the stable owner to join them all for lunch. Not wanting to offend we accepted & all sat on the floor above the stable block eating out of a large bowl in the middle of us with our fingers. Flies everywhere!

I just hoped all hands were washed after clearing out the stables before lunch! Helen & I were actually expecting to be ill later that day because of the lunch, but suprisingly & thankfully were not.!

Very generous of them though
