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!!
MUCH MORE TO BE POSTED!!!!
