Pretty neat - but talk about a "firm" mattress !! We sleep on these while we're there - my back aches for the first week or so until I get used to it.
And of course - the zoo -
While we were there - the girls got to swim with the Egyptian Team - of course - their pool was Olympic size - twice as big as what we were used to - but it was nice to swim outside again !!
One night the girls and I went for a walk. We came across 2 men making Konafa. Here in the states you can buy it as Shredded Filo Dough - - my MIL makes the best Konafa around - the next picture is my ds enjoying what MIL can make. The amazing thing is these men were out making this around 9 or 10 at night - and they only sell it fresh - so that means people would come by to buy it right then.
And this final picture is for everyone that asks "while you there - do you dress like an Egyptian?" My answer is "sometimes" - if I'm going to the mosque to pray, or to a family members house who is very religious - then yes, I cover and wear very loose clothing - but as you can see in the zoo picture above - I dress just like an American at other times - both are acceptable - and I have never been treated with anything but respect - either way !
