since madami pa akong hindi naipopost na pictures from my trip sa egypt and para maiba naman sa mga madamdamin kong post, i will now continue with some miscellaneous pictures from alexandria.
heto ang alexandria by day. sa kakalakad, ang dami naming nakita at nadiscover na mga lugar.
in honor of alexander the great. i took this picture while riding a taxi papunta sa montaza palace.
so heto na ung montaza palace. It was one of the palaces of the former Egyptian royal family (the descendants of Muhammad Ali) located in Alexandria, Egypt. It was built in 1892 by Abbas Hilmi Pasha, the last khedive (viceroy) of Egypt (wikipedia.org).
me at unknown side of the palace. hindi ko na alam kung sang side ito sa sobrang laki niya. sadly, hindi kami nakapasok kasi hindi raw siya open for public. bantay sarado din ito ng mga national guards of egypt.
while walking around the montaza palace, we were able to come across this great architecture. tingin namen e mini-parthenon.
pagod mula sa kakapasyal. i am still at the village of montaza palace which is surrounded by the mediterranean sea.
this is the stanley bridge. you are very sure that you are in alexandria kapag nakita mo to.
this is shrine of the unknown soldier at the heart of alexandria. kinda creepy diba?
sa totoo lang, lahat ng mga pamamasyal ko sa egypt ay memorable. sinulit ang lahat ng pwedeng makita at magawa while my eyes feasted on every detail na pwede kong tignan. masaya. nakakamiss. nakakalungkot din kasi deep inside my heart, nalalabuan ako kung makakabalik pa ko dun.
nung nagpunta kami ni kuya alex sa alexandria, we planned for a one-day trip lang. balikan ba. with some arabic translations for the places to be visited na niresearch ko, we proceded with the plan. we had so much fun kahit medyo tinanghali na kami ng dating from almost three hours na biyahe.
sa sobrang nagenjoy kami at gusto naming mapuntahan lahat, kuya alex and i decided to stay overnight. without clothes at mga gamit na pangtulog o pangligo and worst, without our passports since nasa h.r. ng hospital namin, tumuloy pa rin kami. without assurance na may tatanggap samin na hotel since wala kaming documents except for our work id, hindi na namin inisip yun. we were so mesmerized with alexandria that we just had to stay longer.
kahit hilamos lang, hindi ko na pinansin yun kasi i had my eyes full on every sight sa alexandria. next site sa alexandria, ang greco-roman ampitheater.
