Cairo, Cairo Governorate, Egypt
The largest metropolis in Africa and arguably the most important city in the Islamic world, Cairo is like a 10,000 watt light bulb dangling over a murky pool of water, threatening to fall in and electrocute the whole planet. Between the constant...

53 Abou El Feda, محمد مظهر، Zamalek, Cairo, الجيزة 11211, Egypt
After home dinners, we gathered all back together for more conversation and cocktails on a beautiful night along the Nile. And afterwards we boated back to the hotel.

El-Darb El-Ahmar, Cairo Governorate, Egypt
Just because the Sultan Hasan Mosque is 600 years old doesn't mean they can't use modern technology to keep it clean.
Save Place
Teraat Al Mansoureya, Giza Governorate, Egypt
Don't be fooled by camels. Cute and adorable-looking on the outside, these guys like to snarl. And spit. And try to make it really clear that they don't actually want you to climb on their back so they can hoist you in the air and be led to and...

El-Gamaleya, Qism El-Gamaleya, Cairo Governorate, Egypt
This gentleman caught my eye from his stool in the back of the store as I wandered through the narrow alleys of the Khan el-Khalili souk in Cairo, and he beckoned me to come in. Thinking of my already overstuffed suitcase and still a bit skittish...

17 Haret Wesst Al Balad, Al Waili Al Kabir Gharb, Hadaeq Al Qubbah, Cairo Governorate, Egypt
This was a pretty emotional moment at Cafe Riche, a historical cafe in downtown Cairo. I was talking with Azer Farag Azer, a businessman (pictured in the middle above) who has been a customer of Cafe Riche since 1960. He was speaking about a lot...

Al Ismaileyah, Qasr an Nile, Cairo Governorate, Egypt
We all had lunch at Arabesque restaurant, in the heart of downtown Cairo. A low-lit, sultry kind of atmosphere with lovely, glowing chandeliers made of....Stella beer bottles!

15 Meret Basha, Ismailia, Qasr an Nile, Cairo Governorate, Egypt
You could spend a lifetime examining the more than 120,000 items in the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, in Cairo. The collection is as vast as it is priceless. The cluttered rooms and dusty display cases give the museum a colonial charm. One of...
