Old Cairo

The abulation hall and minaret of the Ahmed ibn Tulin mosque, built in 867. The external circular stairway on the minaret is unique.

Fresh Falafel in Cairo

Second to last day of my Egypt trip. We have returned to Cairo. Before lunch that included fresh falafel, we visited the Egyptian Musuem. 

The museum is so out of date it still uses fans for climate control and has very few labels identifying items.

Extraordinary works of are art plunked down in galleries  and no one stopping kids and adults from touching them.

They are building a new Egyption Museum in Giza. When finished, it will apparently be the biggest museum in the world. They have a long way to go because of delays. It was scheduled for 2018. This is a bad picture from a bus window.

Luxor Temple After Dark

The Temple at Luxor is fabulous after dark. It called for a second visit.
