Travel day: Cairo - Frankfurt
Arrived at the airport at 8am, my plane was at 9:45 am. After a very stressful situation at the airport, that almost resulted in not flying, or not having my suitcase arrive on the same day, I managed to get on the plane, with my suitcase.
Arrived in Frankfurt at 2:10pm and met my friend. I was finally glad that everything went well. We took the train at the Frankfurt airport station to the city. We stopped for a few minutes at a tourist office in order to buy a German Rail Pass for me.
We then went to Frankfurt. My first view of the city gave me an impression that I did not expect at all. I didn't see any huge skyscrapers, or buildings or banks. I was out in Leipzigerstrasse; it has a church, a school, some houses and some people selling fruits and vegetables. There wasn't any traffic, and I could hear some birds.
We went to my friend's place to put my stuff, have lunch that she had cooked for us, talk a alittle and then went out for a walk in Frankfurt.
Bockenheim is where we stayed. Most of the buildings are rather old, almost the same height (5 floors) and have nice colors. We went to the city center (Roemer Platz), where the Rathaus is. Then we walked by the river and saw the skyscrapers from a distance.
After the walk, we went back home. We had to get ready for our trip that was going to start on the next day. We have to get up at 5:00am to catch the train to Berlin...
