Eid in Egypt ღ


Nile_Cairo

It is feast and vacations usually conjure up images of relaxing with a cocktail by the beach, under the lovely sun.

But if you live in Cairo you will prefer to stay in it during Eid, because you can enjoy the empty streets and there are lots of things to do to enjoy this vacation. 

 The best place to really observe the beauty of a nearly-empty Cairo is the Cairo Tower and some hotels in Zamalek. 

Pyramids

You can also pay a visit to the pyramids and enjoy the ideal time to take those typically tourist photos of the Pyramids. Then right before sunset, rent a felucca, and relax while looking at the sunset view on the Nile.

In the end I wish you a good vacation wherever you are right now.

Season’s fruit: Prickly Pear

Crazy summer and hot weather push you to go for light food and crave more fruits.

Prickly pears are the magenta-coloured fruit of the prickly pear cactus. It is the season to find them around. The cactus fruit is an excellent source of vitamin C and magnesium as well as a good source of fiber.

Depending on the variety, the taste can differ. The red ones are sweet and crispy with a watermelon/strawberry/kiwi flavor while the yellowish one has a sweet, tropical flavor. It is very refreshing and the texture is very pleasant.
