Preview

The travelers—in the past—enjoyed the markets, visited the ladies of the harems, ventured into the baths, and looked onward up the Nile where they were to travel.Cairo, although overwhelming, was—and is—the highlight of any visit to Egypt. Although, of course, much has changed since many of these accounts were written, it has for centuries been a great throbbing city—but, like most cities, a city both with much beauty and excitement and much poverty and hardship.
