Walking Around

Today, I took a long walk in Cairo, Egypt.

I have a training course here, and I want to exercise by walking instead of using taxis for anything nearby.

I have my Garmin eTrex Venture Cx GPSr with me, and used both Google Earth, and Wikimapia to store waypoints for the training center as well as nearby restaurants, supermarkets, and computer shops.

Yesterday evening I walked to a McDonald’s close to my hotel, and found a supermarket on the way, Today I went to my training center and stopped on the way at chilli’s for lunch.

I was wandering around, and saw I was 2km NE of my Hotel, so I used “Find Waypoint” to navigate my way back… Walking around in a city you know nothing about with a GPSr is easy!
