Cairo- Part II

Continuing from Cairo-Part I, here are pictures from the rest of my trip:

Carpet Weaving School
These Carpets are hand-made from camel hair: the head, body and belly hair, which is the softest. It can take upto a year for a large silk carpet to be made.
 I found her sleeping under one of the chairs in the weaving room.

Khan El Khalili Souk
This is one of the oldest markets in Cairo, dating back to 1382. It's ginormous! I spent 3 hours just walking through it and I don't think I still saw all of it.

A cruise on the Nile
I took a night cruise on the Nile in one of the 'felooka' or ferries.  

 Azhar Park
This is a big, beautiful park located close to the Citadel.

 City Stars Mall
City Stars is the biggest mall in Cairo with 6 floors of international shopping retailers. You'll have to take my word for it when I tell you that I didn't shop. At all. :(
Coffee from Turkey, waffles from Egypt and ice cream from Paris.

Only now that I've put up all the pictures do I realize how much I've done and seen although it felt like I missed out so much: the National Museum, the Citadel... But I have a feeling I'll be going back soon!
