Our final stop on the tour of the Old City of Cairo was the Citadel. It was really beautiful, but the truth is that after the Synagogue Experience I was still whirling around in my head with all kinds of emotion, not to mention still reeling from emotion over the last several days of the trip. The Citadel Complex was really quite beautiful and ornate.
In this picture if you look closely you will see the Tourism police standing at his station and yes ...gun on shoulder. Imagine that. If we had tourism police, would they have guns? It is really kind of scary. I guess we don't realize how free the US really is.
