We were very fortunate to catch up with some of our traveling friends from Syria by chance yesterday, so we had a lovely breakfast of strawberries while catching up on the last few travel months.
Met up with our friends in Cairo. It’s amazing how close you can become in such a short period of time. Truly kind people, I feel very blessed to have known them and spent time together.
Took a tour of old Islamic Cairo today and walked through a mosque that was over 1000 years old. These ancient places of love, with ornate decorations to display this affection. Places where people come to proclaim this love publicly - so much so that it can be seen on their foreheads.
Back at the hotel, we sat around and enjoyed chocolates and Zalabia into the late, late evening.
No bed for these two lovers tonight. No sleep either. It’s off to the airport after midnight to get ready for the 3:50am flight to Istanbul…
