Cairo hosted and won the 2006 Africa Cup soccer tournament while we were there. People celebrated all night long in the streets with firecrackers, horn-honking, and whoops and hollers. Very fun!
From our hotel we could watch the sun set in the west past the Nile and behind the pyramids (we, of course, stayed on the east side of the river in the land of the living). Keep your eyes peeled for that picture and the falucca floating down the Nile. So interesting to see things you would have seen in ancient times while in the middle of a big modern city.
