Atop Cairo Tower you see the Nile split around you and rejoin on the other side of Gezira Island. Few places in Cairo offer such a view of the cityscape. You see gardens and football fields stretch out below you and the shimmer of the Nile vying to reach the horizon line. This old city has some charm.
The gardens on Gezira Island sprawl out under Cairo Tower. Here the shelter of many trunked trees keeps you from the heat of the sun 🌞 Taxis and buggies drop off visitors as they wind their way through the gardens to the famously rebellious tower.
Near the Cairo tower is a coffee roasting shop that has been open since the 1920's. It is family owed, they buy beans from all over the world and prepare their own blends with and without cardimum. You can watch the beans being roasted. It smelled delicious. #wintergetaway
