Me and the family are going to be in Egypt for the month of April (staying pretty much the whole month). I'm so freakin excited! I'm hoping to meet a couple blogger-friends I've made over the years HOW AWESOME!

Here are some things I want to do while I'm there:

  • Go to Hurghada or Sharm and go scuba diving
  • Visit the souks 
  • Go to the mosque regularly, try to get into a habit of praying at least sometimes, absorb the cultural and religious energy
  • Visit the hanging church
  • Take the metro, in particular the new line that was built since last time I was in Cairo, passes by the family condo
  • Go to Ahly park 
  • Go by Tahrir square (not gonna spend extended periods of time there though)
  • EAT FOOD, this will be a focus :P
  • Go see a show at a nightclub, maybe belly dancers or something
  • Spend some time at an orphanage
  • If possible, go to Manshiat Nasar. It's not super far, but husband thinks it's a little dangerous and of course not in any way touristic. 
  • See family and friends
  • Go to Alex (dad is based in Alex, mom in Cairo)
The more I think about it, the more I can't wait! I have so many things I want to experience, I want to re-live my experiences in the city... Nothing too fancy except our trip to Hurghada or Sharm. 

I need your help! If you have anything to recommend from specific restos or outings or clubs, ANYTHING, I'll be happy!

Sounds exciting!
For belly dance, my former dance teacher is performing in Cairo, seemingly in the Fairmont Nile City Hotel. She has a very interesting blog I've followed for a while:

Awesome! I will check to see if I can go see her, if it's in the area and works out, I really want to see a bellydancing show :D

Oh, how nice! I can't wait to read your posts about your time there. I hope you are able to do everything on your list!
