colduphere - you made me laugh! That is so true. I had to learn new ways to communicate that to taxi drivers.

I didn't bother - it was wild, but it was an experience to remember!

As long as I'm alive to "remember it", I'm OK. I just have to keep telling them I don't mind NOT being the first one to my destination. I just want to arrive alive.

We crossed the 6th October bridge in a taxi on our way to the Egyptian Museum. It was early on the weekend (as I remember) so there wasn't much traffic. The car was from about 1975. The guy went 90 kph (55 mph) while traversing lanes like a slalom skier. From then on we were happy to be stuck in traffic just to keep the speed down.

Hey, on the ring road, we saw a guy throw his car in reverse and back up (at high speed, to pick up someone on the side of the road) with everyone else going 65 mph around him!

That's how people DIE on the Ring Road. I hate that highway.
