Egypt: Day 11 (2 Nov 2007)

Volume 10, Issue 131; 20 Nov 2007; last modified 08 Oct 2010

Our last day. The Hanging Church and the Cairo museum.

The Hanging Church, a Coptic Orthodox church, really is suspended between two towers.

It would take days (months, actually) to see the collection of the Egyptian museum.

What a wonderful vacation.


Is the first picture supposed to fit its caption? I don't get it.

Sorry, John, some explanation is probably in order. That's a photo of a "window" placed in the floor of the Hanging Church through which one can see that it's suspended above an open space.

If there's a vantage point from which to see the towers with the church suspended between them, I never saw it.
