Photo Essay: Balade de Saida Zeinab a Geish Square

This whole walk took about 3 hours. We went to Saida Zeinab to Geish Square (to eat chinese). passing by Ibn Tulun, Amir Taz Palace, Bab Zuweila, Azhar park, Azhar mosque, and Moez el-Din Street. Photos taken on July 6th, 2013
View of Saida Zeinab Mosque, with traffic 
Ibn Tulun minaret

Some school. with a nice brick facade/entrance.

Sabil up the street from Ibn Tulun. Amir Taz Palace is down that street on the right.

An old cinema

Coffee bean being roasted on the sidewalk. Smelled SO good

Market street scene with kids playing

Bab Zuweila, one of the seven door guarding Old Cairo

Probably from the early 20th

The old wall they discovered at the foot of Azhar park

Lots of romance going on at this particular spot... :-)


Almost NO room for light to pass through in between the buildings 
Islamic library. telling of how close we were to al-azhar university/mosque
Chinese dog. a sign it was time for chinese food in Abaseya
