day 2

So Patrick and I did our typical "explore a whole city in a day" trick in Cairo today, exploring almost all of central Cairo on foot. Left to do: Pyramids, Egyptian Museum, and Islamic Cairo (where we're heading right now).

Highlight of the trip so far:
Wandering in some random area in Cairo that looked interesting (read: outdoor market), where we shared some lunch and some tea with some locals. They knew no English, and we knew no Arabic, but I think we were both entertained by each other's company. We did teach each other how to say "motorcycle" in our respective languages, but we didn't take them up on the offer of a tour riding the bike. Then PMA almost killed himself.
