Khan al-Khalili


The Khan al-Khalili bazzar in Islamic Cairo is a maze of alleyways and narrow streets lined with shops

that sell just about anything.  It has been a bustling center of commerce since the Middle Ages.


Fishawi's is a very famous cafe in the Khan al-Khalili that has been open every day and night for

the past two centuries.  A visit to Cairo is absolutely incomplete without stopping by for a glass of chai,

a few puffs on a sheesha, and maybe even a henna tattoo





These tobacco stained walls have undoubtedly seen it all over the past 200 years.



Midan al-Hussein is the square in front of the Khan al-Khalili.
