Waiting for an overnight train to Luxor, we whiled away our time in a little tea room, within sight of the pyramids of Giza.
In historic Giza, the trains come and go every few minutes. As we prepared for our overnight journey to Luxor, we found, to our dismay that having a ticket didn’t guarantee a spot on the train. With patience in hand, one waits until a train with enough room arrives. We were in a group of forty-two, we would never be able to get on the same train.
Several of us involuntarily decided to wait for another train. (That’s what happens when you are the last one off the bus). Jet lagged, naive and gullible, we never realized that we could have been stuck there all night.
The room was door less and windowless, open air dining at it’s finest. Offering a welcome refuge from the chilly Egyptian evening, it became a lesson in humanity.
