They took us to the Fairmont hotel which was recently building only the waterfront in downtown. It was extravagant with a gorgeous view of the city and beautiful bathtub that had glass windows opening up into the bedroom. Fancy!
We settled in a called our friends who lived in Cairo to come meet us for dinner. They brought koshari, a wonderful local dish made of rice, pasta, tomatoes, and amazing spices. So simple but so good. We relaxed together and they took us on a walk down the road to find a couple necessities we forgot to pack.
