    The Pompey's Pillar (Alexandria)

    The very first site visiting I touched down during my arrival in Egypt was this... The Pompey's Pillar. Or some people would prefer the so-called column of Pompeius, it depends on which one you would prefer to read.

    Fortress of Kaitbay

    Another place to visit in Alexandria, it was our 2 days tour only but there are so much photos to share. So this is the Fortress of Kaitbay. The Fortress of Kaitbay is one of Alexandria most famous ancient lighthouse that was built in 279B.C. The term lighthouse has the meaning itself, but we do not see any lighthouse when we get there. The reason is easy and simple, it was already destroyed by a disaster that happened long time ago.
