This quite possibly could be the 1st telephone ever used in Egypt.  It probably got a call from Alexander Graham Bell around 1901.  Unfortunately for us, this was the phone in our hotel (no joking).  This made our call to the US using an 800 number quite difficult (impossible).  Too bad once again Julia's debit card was suspended for being used in a different country.  I hope no one has been holding their breath for any calls from us overseas, it's always a bit tricky, but makes a good story.

If you think the Nile River is romantic, the poverty and garbage spewed along the side will make you rethink.  This is journey to buy silk carpets.  This is why you should just buy them from Julia.  So far, this is Julia's favorite carpet.  100 % pure silk, hand knotted made.  It makes people want to roll around naked on it.  The salesman gave us a demonstration of this.  (Anything to hawk a rug)


The city scene:  Bizarre, Bazaar, donkeys on the highway, people riding bicycles with baskets on their heads, sides of beef hanging in the butcher's window, car horns CONSTANTLY honking, cats & dogs sleeping with each other!  Total Mayhem!  Never a dull moment in Cairo.
