As I was booking a ticket to Alexandria today, on the Egyptian Trains to Hell, I saw a little note printed on the ticket which I had not seen before. No, they it was not written one way ticket to hell, the print mentioned the Egyptian National Railways website and also stated very happily, “Book your ticket online”. I thought, it was about time, and I was willing to give this disaster a try.
I came home, entered the website (which was typical Egyptian in every way) and then clicked on “Reservation Services”.
Boom that was it, I went to a page that said, “More Information to T.B.A”, not to forget that the page was a static html page. I thought, typical Egyptian.
However, I said let me take a look at the website, and it was nothing but a joke, A – Z. If you are feeling bored, then give the website a chance. And don’t forget to read the “Chairman Speech”.
Ooops, yeah one more thing, the .eg consipiracy strikes again. If you try to access http://egyptrail.gov.eg instead of http://www.egyptrail.gov.eg, it will not work. :) Enjoy.
