Egypt Diary: Day 2
Be sure to check out Day 1 here.
13 When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up,” he said, “take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.”
14 So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, 15 where he stayed until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: “Out of Egypt I called my son.”

Couldn't sleep very well. Woke up periodically, finally at 6AM, took a shower, took pictures, called home on the balcony, had breakfast, group meeting, left at 10:30AM to explore Cairo. First went to an old church "crypto?," then visited the place where Mary, Joseph, and Jesus stayed/hid for 3 months! (Matthew 2:15). Went to a park at ate at a covered, open-sided cafe/restaurant overlooking the City of the Dead and the park. We also rode a sailboat!
