    ... a walled city, now a mosque dense local and tourist shopping area. final dinner with our group and final dinner of our holiday :( was good. while it wasn't exactly typical Egyptian food (we went to Chilli's) it was good to get to chat to our guide Waleed as a friend and not a tour guide.

    ... studying Arabic here, and they introduced me to the best mango lassi I ever drank, the cheapest sheeshah bar I've ever been to, the most unwanted awkward shoulder massage I've received (from the sheeshah bar proprietor) and the cheapest falafel I've eaten. Also got a ton of stares at the sheeshah bar, apparently they've never/rarely seen an asian person smoke sheeshah. The next morning, I figured out how to take public transport to the ...
