Cairo Day 2

Around the Middle East

I went up early to see the pyramids at sunrise, but as I arrived at around 6, I found out to my dismay that the whole area is blocked off and opens by 8. Not feeling like waiting to pay for missing the sunset I went back to the hostel and decided to go to Cairo's islamic quarter instead, where most of the photos of this album are from.
