 EGYPT: TENTATIVE ITINERARY

 There is a famous quote from the Dreigroschen opera by Bertold Brecht, the German playwright of the early 20th Century: 

  Ja, mach nur einen Plan
  sei nur ein großes Licht
  und mach dann noch ‘nen zweiten Plan
  gehn tun sie beide nicht
.

Roughly translated this means: 
Sure, make a plan, be a big shot.  Then make a second plan – but none of them will work!
 
That’s how I feel.  I spent so much time mapping out distances, choosing sites, deciding on possible roads and checking out available transportation and now there are riots in Cairo…  The first obstacle will be that I will arrive at 6:40 PM – one hour after the curfew that has just been imposed on the capital city.  Oh well – being flexible and going with the flow will be the order of the day once again.  Foreign travelers have not been restricted as of now.  I will put my trip into Ganesh’s hands.    Here is the plan I made.  Let’s see how close to this I will come:
 
30 Day Visa at Entry – 27 Overnights (27 days)
 
Time Frame: Tuesday, February 1 through Monday, February 28
In green: First choice Hotels.
