Old Market and Mosques
- The Old Market – The Khan el Khalili Bazaar
Either fortunately, or unfortunately, it was Coptic Easter and a long weekend so this SUnday, many of the stores were closed for the holiday. In a way it was nice, because it was much less crowded and we were much less bothered, but still got a flavour of th place. However, apparently when it is really busy, it is also something to see. Oh well, it gives us a reason to go back someday.
Some of the market is real market stalls; unfortunately, there are now many stalls that seem to sell junk “made in China” for tourists. In the end, we did not see much that appealed to our fancy – but then, we are not that interested in souvenirs.
