READING

READ THE LETTER, THEN ANSWER THE QUESTIONS BELOW.

Dear Terry,
Greetings from Cairo! The weather is very hot here and I’m having a wonderful time. I’m staying with my friend, Abdullah. He lives in the centre of Cairo. I’ve been here since Monday and I’ve already done lots of things! I’ve already visited the Khan al-Khalili bazaar. We visited it on Tuesday. I bought some lovely handmade souvenirs there. I have also seen the Pyramids and the Sphinx at Giza. I saw them yesterday. They were amazing. I even rode a camel. It was fun! I’ve been to a traditional restaurant. Abudllah took me there last night. I tried couscous and falafel. The place was fantastic and the food was just delicious.
There are a lot of things I haven’t done yet. I haven’t been on a boat trip down the River Nile yet, and I haven’t visited the Egyptian Museum. We are going on a boat trip tomorrow and we are going to visit the museum one of these days to see the exhibits. We are also going to visit Luxor. The place is famous for its huge temples and statues.
Cairo is a fascinating city – you must visit it one day! Anyway, I’m returning to England on Sunday next week, so I’ll call you then.
Best wishes,
Jack
