First stop this morning was Garbage City and the Cave Church at Moquattam Hills.

Next stop was supposed to be Abdeen Palace but it was closed…what to do?  Well, we are good at dealing with changes here in Egypt so we went to Bab Zuwayla where the Street of the Tent Makers is.  Mickey got a cute little tent for her kitty kat and I’m going back tomorrow night to get one for my grandson – a bit bigger than Mickey got for her cat though!

Lunch was Egyptian sandwiches and then we were off to the Islamic Museum of Art – I love this place.
