Egypt : Orange oh orange...

On 29th of December, we started our journey towards Alexandria. We opted to stay the night because people said that Alexandria's a beautiful city. In Egpyt, toll booths are quite rare and far in between. Ahemm...not like Malaysia where you can find one at every few kilometres...hehehe. And they're cheap too! So, I managed to snap the picture of one of the toll booth.

A few hundred kms only costs less than rm10?!!

Right after the toll booth going out of Cairo, I could see a lot of fruit orchards, especially oranges. I felt like being in a mediterranean country. We asked the driver to stop at one fruit seller and I was amazed at how cheap the oranges were...hehehe. The lady gave us some oranges to taste and they were so sweet! So, I bought a whole crate!

While waiting for the others I took the opportunity to take some pictures at the orange orchard. Suddenly, Amir came and plucked one out of the trees...sigh. I was so scared because it was stealing, I told the lady about it...isk, isk...Amir...

We bought so many oranges that the van was full of them...hehehe. Some we put under the seats and throughout the journey we would suddenly squashed an orange or two. The worst thing was the fact that the oranges we bought were not sweet, they were very sour! We were duped by the fruit seller...hehehe. Padan muka!

We ended up giving most of the oranges to the students when we went back to Cairo...hehehe.

See, how fresh they were?!!

The girls...
