Day 2 Egyptian Odyssey

This is the view of the city of Cairo from the escaprment where the fortress of Saladin and the Mohammed Ali mosque is located. Somewhere on the horizon, you should be able to see the pyramids.

We started out early and went to the escarpment overlooking Cairo. The mosque was very impressive and very intricately decorated. One of our party had to put on a green choir robe over her dress as she was deemed to be dressed appropriately. Who knew??
We had lunch at a restaurant moored on the Nile, and the food was very good. We had our first taste of egyptian desserts, and they were most delicious. Blogger is giving me fits, so I will finish this posting tonight.
