missed first train due to exiting vs. entering passenger battle
two men saw, gradually gently nudged me to platform edge
When doors to next train opened they SHOVED me into the car
same Happened on return- was SHOVED out of car onto platform
ENTIRELY helpful for a clueless westerner! Might be typical!
Cairo was very safe, not even stares except a few guys who said “Great moustache! You look Like an Egyptian 😊”!!!
Westerners have the wrong impression. People were helpful when needed. No animosity. Can’t wait to go back. Hire one guide for pyramids, old Cairo, etc. Got a private tour of one of the oldest mosques (empty between prayers) by a very friendly imam who was delighted in my interest and questions!
