... turned away at the door. Bummer. Anyhow heard it's a joke. Went to a nice mosque inside the citadel and met 4 Arab girls who are Muslim missionaries. I got a free English Quran because I could list the 5 pillars of Islam (backpat). Found myself as part of a "evangelize islam" session between the missionaries and 3 American girls who work for a Christian NGO. The missionaries pointed out details in the Quran about the human embryo and geography ...

... footage if you are interested. Our last city before Cairo was Alexandria and by this point I was cracking. Although I enjoyed the chicken and rice I wanted something "homey" again and I found it at an Asian restaurant on the top floor of a hotel overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. I was so very happy to have noodles! In Alexandria I went to visit one of the most amazing libraries I have ever seen or I should say the bibliotheque!

... ride and we were home. As we were looking for the last taxi, we could hear the mosque sermons over the loudspeakers. John had said he'd gotten an email from the US embassy (you can sign up for informational emails) that there were planned protests for the afternoon and we all wanted to be home by then.

So far, everybody I've met has been very Pro-American (Amreekey). Today both taxi drivers said, 'Yeah! Obama' and one 'Finish Morsi!' Of course, we have to be ...

... The meal consisted of baba ganoush, hummus, egg with tomatoes and beef, tastziki and falafel, chicken and beef and for dessert, Mohalabiyya - rice and milk pudding. The restaurant used to be very popular, but now is very quiet with lots of empty tables.

We stopped at the essence shop. The shop owner was very gracious and provided us with many samples of oils. The hand blown glass bottles were very beautiful. We settled on a medium size bottle of Sandalwood that ...
