Saturday, December 26

We spent the entire afternoon touring around Islamic Cairo, the area of the city containing some of the oldest mosques there are. Since Andrew is studying Middle East history, he’s the best guide to have.

After a tiring day, we left Nancy at home with the girls (they were all exhausted) and had dinner at Lucille’s, once touted as the best hamburgers in the world by someone at Time Magazine. They are delicious, I’m told, but I don’t know if they’re the best in the world!
