view of Cairo from CitadelOur hotel in Cairo, the Happy City, was, if not fancy, at least convenient, within walking distance of the Egyptian Museum.

With Cairo as base both before and after our excursions south up the Nile, we went to Dashur and Giza to see pyramids and sphinx.

We also went up to the Citadel, beautiful site for a beautiful mosque (cased in pyramid granite), from which you could look out over the city, and walked down through some of the Arab quarter.
