Old Cairo

The first Sunday we spent in Cairo with the Sisters of Notre Dame de Sion and visited old Cairo after joining the mass at the Jesuits Church „Santa Familia“. We took the metro to Mar Girgis and first visited the Coptic Museum. After a tea at St. George’s Church we walked through the narrow street to St. Barbara’s Church and Ben-Ezra Synagogue. Ben-Ezra is one of the oldest Synagogues in the country and sometimes still used for special religious services. In the evening we joined the Sound and Light show at the Pyramids of Giza. A huge almost empty arena of chairs where waiting for the few tourist who came.
