    ... of spices in hessian bags, windows full of gold and colourful scarves hanging everywhere! It was a delight walking through having our guide tell us about the history of the place. We had Turkish coffee and sheesha in the oldest, and most famous, coffee shop in Cairo, El Fishawy.

    ... among a people who are God fearing doesn't mix well. It only takes for the Brotherhood to paste the name of Allah over their initiatives and the people will fall in behind.

    ... next door is the headquarters of the National Democratic Party, which was completely torched during the revolution in 2011. The museum itself was broken into, and the café and shop destroyed by the fire, but reports are contradictory as to what was damaged or stolen and how badly. It seems that many things have been recovered or can be restored, which is lucky, as these are some of the rarest antiquities in the world, and many of them are up to 4,000 years old.
