Erik in Cairo part 6: Tahrir to Maadi...WALKING!

Last day, Cairo has been explored to the most, all important (and even not important) places visited...This day has been mostly spent walking!

Erik in Cairo part 5: The new Cairo - Heliopolis

Monday was the day Erik decided to walk around Heliopolis, the (realtively) new Cairo, didn't do much that day apart from walking all around, having Shawerma for lunch...i mean dinner, and having just good time together.

Erik in Cairo part 4: Old Cairo and a very nice dinner

Saturday started with Egypt's most famous Azhar mosque , we went in, walked around and a nice man there told us the history of the mosque through the years which was quite a lot of new info for me as well, the mosque is really impressive and just hearing how active it was through the years teaching seroiusly all the students from around the world different arts and studies of language and Islam makes you feel the hugeness of this place.

Erik in Cairo part 3: The Citadel, Azhar park and more

Friday was just a normal weekend for me, while it was a busy day for my dear Norwegian friend.
He started his day going to the citadel, told me that he's quite impressed by the number of weapons he saw in the military museum up there, he saw that mosque with columns from different places (of which one came from an old church and still has a cross on its top).

Erik in Cairo part 2: The Egyptian museum and Koshary :D

Another pharaonic day we had today, met up at the Egyptian museum, remember me describing it as really huge? (check topic "Out and about in Cairo"), today we managed to go all around it: both floors, all extra rooms and also the two rooms of the royal mummies.
