A Banana Split in Al-Azhar Park
Cairo was a "tough job"--but somebody had to do it. Who better than three intrepid explorers: Sue, Rogério and moi! After a strenuous day in Islamic Cairo, we had the opportunity to spend a short while in Al-Azhar Park, a lushly green oasis in the heart of historic Cairo. Of course, we grabbed it! The park is relatively new and houses several restaurants, a children's play area, and a mini-lake. See the map below:The park is very clean and well-maintained. Bravo to residents of Cairo for doing their part to keep it looking nice! There are nice meandering paths throughout the park that lead one to special garden areas, overlooks, restaurants, water features and the like.
