Winter in Egypt

Coming back from Siwa I had a few days to spend in Cairo, guided by Emma who took me around the Islamic Cairo.

January 29th, 2013

We stopped by a pillowcase shop to look and before we knew it we were drinking tea and taking over their jobs.
A typical storefront in Islamic Cairo, with a wonderful shopkeeper on his chair and with his tea.

Kids are playing on the roof, waving at me and asking me to take their photo.

The green carpets bring a beautiful light to the courtyard in the early evening.
People are washing their hands and feet in the center of the mosque.
A boy asked me if I would take his photo.
