Group Activities in Cairo from July 20 on?

After the conference, who will be in Cairo? Where will you be staying? Do we want to go to Giza as a group one day? I'll be in Cairo until the 29th and, as a woman traveling alone, would love to do things as a group, if people are interested. --Girl2k 17:20, 2 July 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Yes, I'd be interested in going to Giza as a group! Maybe on the 21st/22nd? No idea where we're staying in Cairo. -- Phoebe 15:39, 8 July 2008 (UTC)[reply]
Some of us are going on the 21st or 22nd (prolly the former). The more the merrier :) --Dungodung 18:06, 10 July 2008 (UTC)[reply]
I'm thinking of leaving Alexandria on afternoon of 22nd, and staying in Cairo till 25th. And yes, I'm also thinking of joining a group to travel together, it will be more fun, easy, safe and cheap. About staying in Cairo i'm thinking of number of hotels for ~30-35$ person per night, didn't book anything yet though so we can do it after deciding on place. --Xelgen 21:45, 11 July 2008 (UTC)[reply]

When will you be there?

Tourism plans?

Do you have tourism plans? Want to go with a group of people?

    • I'm travelling with my son. (He graduates from high school in June.) Arrangements with other Wikimedians could be fun. Eclecticology 07:54, 30 May 2008 (UTC)[reply]
    • I'm traveling alone, though a friend of the family has graciously provided lodging for me in Cairo. I'm looking for other Wikimedians who wouldn't mind having a rather head-in-the-clouds kind of person tag along. Arria Belli 17:51, 6 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]
    • I'm coming with two other Wikimedians. We'll be staying in Egypt for more than a week after the conference, so tourism is planned with anyone who'd like to see the same points of interest we'd like. --Dungodung 21:53, 9 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]
    • I will be visiting Cairo and Giza for a week before the conference and would appreciate company! Awadewit 22:19, 11 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]
    • I'm traveling alone. My travel plan is already fat though, but no plan from 14th to 16th in Cairo, and very vague on 24th in Sharm El-Sheikh. I think I want to spend a day in Alexandria after the conf and it will be great to go around with other Wikimedians. --Aphaia 14:02, 18 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]
    • Arriving in Egypt (Cairo) July 15 (noon). Plan to see pyramids on 15th, and Cairo city on 16th. Will leave for Alexandria 16th late evening for the conference. Return flight on 20th from Alexandria. Would be glad to have company in Cairo. - Aksi great 07:24, 19 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]
    • Not sure where I want to go yet, but would like to try to tour with other Wikimedians. --Cspurrier 18:20, 30 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Going somewhere after the conference

As nothing seemed to be finnaly decided

Guys, as up to now we haven't succeed on deciding things on group travelling, I'm still free, my local mobile number is 0164769946 contact me. Currently my plan is to stay in Alexandira till 22th afternoon, and then move to Cairo. I'm staying at Delta hotel, 109 room. Aleksey, from Armenia (the one, which is not Romania ;) ). --Xelgen 18:37, 19 July 2008 (UTC)[reply]
