Day 3 – Cairo – Souq Khan el-Khalili

Today was all about travelling to the Islamic District of Cairo (via our now BFF – taxi driver Hamada Grapes – we call him Hi’Im Outta Grapes!) to the Souq Khan el-Khalili.

This souq is built on the site of the mausoleum known as the turbat az-za’faraan (Saffron Tomb), dating back to 970 A.D.

Today was AMAZING – today was about stepping into ancient times in Cairo…..SO AMAZING!!!  Today we felt a part of Cairo.  Part of it’s culture, it’s people.

I’ll post a blog with videos of today – because only video TRULY captures the sounds and noise of today.  But the high speed internet is BEYOND not working that I’m lucky to have this!!


Love, Stephanie    xoxoxoxo
