佟贝勒爷It’s almost Christmas again. Today I want to talk about my Christmas trip for the past three years. Let’s not mention it, let’s start with Christmas 2017. In fact, in 2016, it was decided not to go to European and American countries every Christmas because most European and American countries are Christian countries. Christmas to New Year is the most important time of the year. Whoever wants to feel the pure Christmas atmosphere It will be the first European and American countries, and I was the same 16 years ago! Maybe people will suffer from aesthetic fatigue. I have serious aesthetic fatigue in Europe, both in East and South, North and South. In fact, when you have traveled all over, you can sum it up. In addition to some natural scenery in Northern Europe, East, South, West and Central Europe include the Balkans. The country’s cultural landscape and historical origins are inseparable from two places, one is Italy (the ancient Roman Empire) and the other is Turkey (the Ottoman Empire). You see, many European countries still retain the name Turkey Old Street. Places (such as Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina)! What should I do if I get tired of aesthetics? Shall we change place? So I decided to move to the Middle East and Africa since 2016, hahaha! In fact, many people would think that going to the Middle East countries for Christmas is not nonsense. What kind of Christmas do most Islamic countries in the Middle East celebrate? ! That's right, but I found that every country has a different attitude towards Christmas! Some are open and some are conservative! Let’s talk about Egypt. This is not the first time I have come to Egypt at Christmas 2017. I am afraid that the most impressive thing about the friends who have been here is not the pyramids and the Nile but the messy and messy urban environment. Actually, you come a lot. You can feel that everything except Cairo is okay. For example, my favorite city of Alexandria on the Mediterranean Sea. Two of the Seven Wonders of the World are here, the Alexandria lighthouse and the library (of course after thousands of years Nothing exists at present). Maybe it's because I have a special affection for the Mediterranean. I like Mediterranean cities in any country! Friends who have been to Alexandria must have been to the Montazah Palace Garden (commonly known as the Summer Palace). Before, I just took photos in the garden like you did, because the palace has been changed to the Presidential Palace since the Mubarak era! Fortunately this time, we were authorized by the Alexandria Tourism Bureau to enter (now it is still the summer residence of the current Egyptian President Sisi). Unfortunately, I can only watch and can not take pictures. Here I want to expose myself, maybe It is also a bad problem of many Chinese people, that is, people did not allow me to take pictures, or I secretly took two photos in the hall just entered. I solemnly apologize here. The impulse is not because of quality but because of the Christmas atmosphere. After all, I deliberately took Christmas. I rushed to the appointment. A few days ago, I was still basking on the Red Sea in Hurghada. Why did I run so far away in such a cold Alexander, hahaha! Everyone should look at the photos and feel the same at first glance. This arrangement is almost like my elementary school class meeting, haha! But I am still very touched in my heart. It is great that a backward country and an Islamic country can do this for us foreigners on Christmas Day. I still want to thank them today!

_ce***37Traveling to Egypt, in addition to the Egyptian Museum and the Pyramids, Alexandria is also one of the must-see attractions. It takes about 3 hours to drive from Cairo. It is dusty and dusty all the way, but when it comes to Alexandria, there is indeed another view. From this architectural design Looking out of the particularly modern Alexandria Library, the blue sky and white clouds make it feel like traveling through time and space.

Monument
莲子99The remains of historical buildings from the Hellenistic period in Egypt, the other part here is only the small sphinx. The large platform of the foundation is still preserved, making this pillar more lonely. This is the landmark of Alexandria.

Castle
莲子99At the east end of Binhai Avenue, the off-white castle is not high, and the shape is very stable. The water keeps beating against the embankment around the castle, and you can feel a natural surging power. The classic angle is beautiful.
