I'm waiting for Zee in the lobby when he comes to pick me up for the airport. We have to stop at another hotel first for him to drop something off. It's one of the very fancy hotels right next to the pyramids. He says it was a palace before. I go inside with him to check it out....


While I'm waiting for Zee, I start chatting to another tour operator who's waiting for his guests in the lobby. I tell him what an amazing time I've had in Egypt. It's overcast and threatening rain. He tells me, "The sky is crying because you are leaving."

The ride to the airport feels sad. I can't believe I'm already leaving this place. Usually, when I travel I look forward to going to the airport to go home from a trip, but not this time. When we arrive at the airport, we are still very early so while are outside, Zee meets one of his colleagues...good looking guy with killer eyes! Can all these handsome men stop appearing now - JUST as I'm leaving?!

After Zee checks me in, I go through to my boarding gate...even though I'm early.
