Walk down the historic streets of Islamic Cairo, an atmospheric district of mosques, madrasas, merchant houses, and fountains that together form part of a World Heritage Site. Retaining many of its traditional buildings, the area stands in contrast to the modern sections of the city and the suburbs that surround it, with medieval landmarks and historic places of pilgrimage topping most sightseeing tours. Despite its storied sites and standout buildings, the district remains a place of everyday life, with a bustling market and a number of traditional teahouses and restaurants frequented by locals.

I will never forget those beautiful days...
