If you’re not in Egypt during Ramadan then you really are missing out on a lot! It’s something we can’t really explain, there’s such a nice spirit among the people, that’s just heart-warming. Just for this month, people decorate, they get excited and they buy a fanoos, to celebrate the festivities. The streets are filled with lights in every corner, which makes this month all the more special.
Who wouldn’t love to see their city from above? It gives us a new appreciation of the place where we live, where we were raised and where we will one day raise our own kids. We took advantage of the weekend and went to the Cairo Tower! The experience was thrilling. Doing something new with our friends and getting to see the beauty of Cairo that we sadly take for granted everyday was exciting! We stood at the edge of this long tower observing Cairo form above, something that we rarely get to do! We were pointing out the different parts of Egypt’s capital and gaining new perspective about every little piece of it.
