    ... into the thick of the city. The traffic was heavy but not tragic and we soaked in the sights. We passed over the Nile but unlike yesterday where it was very much the life source of the area, it almost seemed to be grappling for space as buildings crowded around its green banks. That said, every tiny available space is being farmed, these minuscule little square patches with a central mud hut, surrounded by towering pillars of bricks.

    ... pastries, cakes, Oum Ali, dates and nuts.

    Half an hour later, gorged to immobility, I feel like I could cry again for a different reason.

    The grand finale of the night comes in the form of an explosive African dance troupe (despite being on the continent, the Egyptians only ever refer to sub-Saharan countries as 'African'), who conga their way onto the dance floor in feather headdresses and grass skirts to ignite the crowd once more with drum-banging ...
