A bus ride back to Giza and I navigate my way to the Giza Metro Station. For LE$1, I am en route to Old Cairo. The metro has the “sardine effect" but this time I hold on from the inside.
The Coptic Museum
The Hanging Church
Where it is believed Joseph took Mary and Baby Jesus when they fled to Egypt.
Amazingly, I stand in the spot were Jesus may have played as a toddler.
Outside the mosque, I spend a few minutes watching kids play with a soccer ball.
If I had a particular destination in mind I would say I got lost many times as I left Old Cairo walking North, I think toward Cairo. Thru narrow streets and dusty alleyways I witnessed everyday Egyptian life. A father picking his daughter up from school, kids at play, street merchants at work. Egyptians going about their every day life.
Before I know it my time is running short and I am back on the Metro towards Hotel Longchamps. I get to play "Cairo Chicken" a few more times along the way, so far I am still winning!
I sit back, enjoy a few guavas and watch the local trains come and go.
8:20PM. ALL ABOARD. NEXT STOP LUXOR!
