Old Cairo ...
I explored the old city today - some of it looks like a bomb hit it. There's real poverty in this part of town but it's also a thriving arts area. You'll find all sorts of things from Bedouin jewelry to Sufi concerts.
I went to a Sufi concert tonight and it was AMAZING! Wow, what an energy these performers generated. I couldn't help but move to the music, so I'm not expecting any miracles with regards to the photos as I was a bit too far away from them and it was quite dark. The dancing was so awe inspiring and I could see some of the guys zoning out as they hit that place where a person becomes one with their art. I want to find some of their music to bring back on a CD. The only music shop I found in Central Cairo didn't have any.
So, time to have a cold shower and see if I can sleep a little.
