BASE ALL YOUR ANSWERS ON THE TEXT


      Last vacation, Ali and Salim went to Egypt to see the pyramids. They took the ship because the plane was pricey. They stayed in a hotel and they visited lots of wonderful places such as Saqqara and Al-Giza They took beautiful photos of the Sphinx. They ate some of the traditional Egyptian food and It tasted delicious. They didn't need a guide because Mahmood, an old Egyptian friend of theirs, was there. They returned two days ago.
