After a long conversation with the Deputy Environmental Minister of Egypt (my structural engineering advisor) about safety and the responsibility of builders to design structures that will not possibly bring harm to others. I abandoned my initial notion to put a pirate ship ladder up instead of stairs. I had this really nifty idea that I could make the stairs really steep with handrails you really have to use. Plus, I liked it better than putting up a rope ladder. (But that would be pretty neat too!) Anyway, I had to start the steps.... Thanks Ahmed for the much needed direction!
