Egypt (60) Dinner with mum

We're right on time to meet Zee, who arrives at the hotel to take mum to the airport. When we're outside, he asks me what I plan to do for the evening since my mum will be leaving. I intend to kill time at the hotel...coffee shop, pool area or something.

Since he's free for the evening, he suggests that I go downtown with him after we drop my mum off at the airport. I agree and rush back to our room to fetch something. I give my key in at reception and the guy who helped me with my airtime asks me, "You're coming back, right?" Of course I am!

The drive to the airport seems rather long, but we arrive soon enough. Mum and I say our goodbyes again, and Zee takes her through to check-in while I wait for him. I'm sad to say bye to mum, but we've had a brilliant week together and have made memories that only the two of us will be able to relate to.
