Dec. 8 Wed.
Got a garry & drove into Alex & then right out to Mex where we had afternoon tea – splendid drive. Came back to Gabbary & drove along Mahmoudieh Canal to the Catacombs – over 2000 years old & very interesting – then to Pompey's Pillar with its 2 Sphinxes & excavations. Then back into Alex, where we dismissed the arbagi at 6 p.m. & had dinner. Attended early performance at Casino Bellevue which finished at 8.30. Back to Ras-el-Tin by garry.
Whole day cost me 22½ piastres. Very cheap.
