Forget not that the Earth delights to feel your bare feet and the Wind longs to play with your hair - Kahlil Gibran

Khan El Khalili, Cairo
This is part of the oldest university in the Islamic world - Al Azhar University. Its actually right next to Khan El Khalili.
Khan El Khalili is actually a sprawling bazaar. Its a labyrinth of little shops interconnected to each other by narrow lanes. Prices are anywhere from 1 Egyptian pound to 1000s. It can one thing at one shop and another in another shop. So buyers beware - you really have to bargain and be canny among these Arab shopkeepers. They may skin you alive!!
Its so crowded Puan Sri and I decided not to go inside its bustling depths. We decided to be practical and avoid all the hassle and jostling by staying outside - hmm cowards maybe?
