Of cours it wasn't all just shopping when I spent a week in Cairo in February 2002!
In fact I had a perfect tour guide in my friend Hoda who studied the ancient Egyptians and speaks fluent German.
Together we went out to visit Sakkara
Unfortunately I have to admit that I don't remember much of this excursion, so I will just have to let the pictures do the talking.
Pay your taxes or....
Dancing for the dead
Back in town
On an other day I did my own share of exploring in Coptic Cairo and visited some of the small churches.
I always appreciate a mosaic!
