Coincidentally, my husband’s sister came up with a suggestion that we could spend a beautiful day with friends at this place. It was a long discussion whether to go to Palais d` Antoniadis or somewhere else, where we know it. Then my husband told me it`s a very historic place. Well, it was decided! No need to think anymore.
I couldn’t wait the Day and at morning I was ready on time, but of course my husband sisters were one hour late. Okay, it` s Nothing at the end, important was that we were going..Wohooo. When we arrived to Antoniadis we had to pay 5 l.e. ticket, which is actually very cheap. we parked and went looking for other friends. We all gathered in a minute and I was expecting what an Action we are going to take now.
Action?! Really!I planned to go through the whole park and do a lot of photos and videos but unfortunately one of our girlfriend was pregnant and so we moved Just to one place where we spent all day. I am sure, you feel me…such an disappointment but I did not give myself the chance ruin my day because high expectation.
In the end it didn’t matter because it was really Magic Day. We took it in the form of a picnic. We spread the blanket on the lawn and put out all the food and drinks what anyone brought, and we all ate freely. We discussed all the topics, sang and when we finished everything we had the “run race.” In that I excelled. Although I have not been running for years, I was still good enough to beat the Egyptians. Well, thanks to the fact that the park is really big we could afford this kind of fun because there were no men around. It is one of the rare places in Egypt, where women can really feel free in nature. We can do whatever comes on our mind and really enjoy it. Really great feeling to have freedom in the fresh air as in Europe.
Moreover, you must not forget about our children. Finally, they could play and romp as they wanted, and each of them was pleasantly exhausted and the moms could finally rest.
When we got tired we started took pictures. In that action the Egyptians beats me. They really love to take a photos as much as they can and so you will not be surprised when in a short while we made 200 pictures in one place. Just on the way back I started to look around me and noticed the amazing historical buildings. I have to say that it was really beautiful, even though was ruined the plants, trees and old buildings just had a real charm. I made a promise to myself, I have to go back there and go through the whole park to really absorb the whole beauty of the park. Actually it is a small copy of Versailles and that’s really something! I’ve always wanted to see it. Even though I speak of this park its old for a centuries, it comes only from the 19th century. What intrigued me, they built a Zoo from part of this park.
Alexandria`s Zoo is really known, but I never thought it was part of something, and specially not of this beautiful park. but even if it’s one park, these two parts are separated. Certainly for the purpose to make more money. That`s all what really matter in Egypt.
What pleased me most was the Gazebo, which I discovered dotted with roses. At first sight it did not seem glamorous but it really took all my heart. I had to take a picture inside the gazebo. At least for a while I felt like a princess in Versailles.
And what pleased most children was when we discovered a small playground. very old but for that purpose to make the children happy, it was enough. The children had a really great time.
I think we have all been very satisfied and happy. and in addition, I got new friends and that please me the most.
