This is a wonderful part of Cairo, but enough for today and we made our way back to our ...
... at Midnight, our driver picked us up and drove us 2 hours to Mount Sinai, he let us off at the base of the mountain at 2 AM, It was dark and we didn't have flash lights, but the moon was very bright so we could see our way pretty good.
