Welcome to crazy Cairo! It's intense, but has lots to offer a traveler.

The Egyptian Museum.

Tahrir Square. People were still camping out, well after the removal of Mubarak.

 

Perfect mint tea.

The huge Khan el-Khalili bazaar.

Cairo Tower.

Pyramids are in the back!

Old Cair features many old churches from the Coptic Christians (which make up about 10% of Egypt's religion).

This is the oldest mosque in Africa (642 AD). The Mosque of Amr Ibn El-Aas.

Some locals were living here during the last days of Ramadan.

I met a friendly local.

This is the tourist popular Mosque of Muhammad Ali Pasha (1848) atop the citadel.
