The other week I went to Egypt for work, and somehow in the midst of all the work madness I was able to carve out what may have added up to 48 hours of free time in Cairo. I am no expert on things to see and do in Cairo. I actually didn’t even look up very much because I didn’t anticipate having much free time to do many touristy things. So I should preface this with saying that most of my suggestions are either the suggestions of people I work with or those of friends that have visited before. But all of them I found worth a visit while I was there!
