Bewildered at Alexandria citadel


So our guide brought us to the Lighthouse of Alexandria. Which is supposed to be one of the wonders of the ancient world. It was soooo crowded! And there's no lighthouse- wait, what?! Yep, I don't see a lighthouse. What is there is the Citadel of Qaitbay (which is not an ancient wonder). Hmm..ok. I think I'm gonna pass. That crowd is not very enticing. 




Highlights: It was nice walking outside the citadel. There's a few souvenir stands outside & its fun to watch all the locals hanging out.
Cast of Characters:  my fellow tour mates
Logistics/ Links: wiki
When: I went April, 2008. It was pretty! Nice weather.
Location: Alexandria, Egypt
Cost: there's a small fee to go into the Citadel
Trip Report: It's ok. I was not too impressed with Alexandria's attractions. It's still a nice city though.
