Here is a lot to see and experience in and around Cairo.
Today we took the ferry across the Nile
Not exactly like my Norwegian experience
with ferries, but amazing!
The ferry is over 60 years old.
It takes people, cars
and whatever else your are riding.
so sweet, so friendly.
Wondered if I wanted to steer the boat,
I thanked him no....
made me feel very safe...
Other boats passing bye..
Well over on the other side,
a man balancing his two cups of tea,
stopped for a minute to say hello..
Chickens for sale,
or maybe fruit.
The oranges are fabulously and sweet
at this time of the year.
Are you still here?
I am knitting...
Memphis is the very first capitol of Egypt,
these are areas forbidden to build on
because of the treasures under the ground,
still not dug out.
The surrounding buildings
are made in the same manners
as for many hundred years ago.
One gets the feeling
that time has been frozen.
We stopped at a local artist.
Mr. Saad is demonstrating his skills.
This kind of work
he has done
since he was 10 years old!
He makes furniture,
boxes, dove and chicken cages
out of palm leaves.
Fast working hands,
lots of experience.
I was a little worried about his feet,
but everything was done with precession.
then finalized the deal
with a cup of Egyptian tea.
Then off to the Bent Pyramid in Dahshur.
