Amol Parashar has put on his travel shoes yet again with another season of Tripoto’s World of MG, An Indian Abroad. This time around his destination is the great African country of Egypt along with all its history, mystery and of course, food.
Parashar begins his journey from the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx expressing his excitement at the fact that Egypt’s cultural heritage is as rich as India’s.
His travels then take him to the capital city Cairo where he explores historic places like the Al Haqim mosque, Cairo Citadel and the Khan-El-Khalil market.
There is a specific segment just for the river Nile and Parashar explains why the longest river in the world has been key to a flourishing Egypt.
Food is a major part of travel and there is plenty of that for the viewers to enjoy. A lot of Egypt’s dishes have similarities with Indian cuisine is something not many people are aware of, including our beloved host.
Parashar also introduces the viewers to al-Qarafa also known as the City of the Dead, the city of Ismailia and Ain Sokhna which is in his words: “Egypt’s version of Goa.”
What this series does brilliantly is that it changes the theme in every ‘webisode’. If the first one focusses on the monuments, the second one is a food adventure, the third, a road trip and the fourth, a holiday destination getaway.
All this combined with Amol Parashar’s effortless humour and wit is just a joy to watch. It is highly engaging to see a fellow Indian discover abroad in such a relatable way.
