... I had organised to catch up with Mohammed, who was my tour guide last time, so we met him in the coffee shop that Ahmed was waiting for us all in. We had dinner out with him and had a nice catch up. He isn't working as a tour guide anymore cause of the drop in tourists but is now working as an English teacher at a international school.

She appears at the top of a flight of stairs on the arm of her father, in a full white dress, jewel-encrusted up to the neck and crown-like higab.

At 10:30 we met Makmood, Omar and Hany. Omar and Makmood took us to an area, Coptic Cairo, that was important to many religions including Christinan, Jewsih and Muslim. The oldest synagogue in the world was located in this area and Arabs built the first Muslim capital here in 642, which was now in ruins.
