Christian Cairo, Cairo
I can not remember where the photo was taken, but it was of a Christian School, in Coptic Cairo.
I remember walking around the Coptic area & 3 teenage girls in school uniform came up to us for a chat. None of there were happy about the restrictions of living in a Muslim country even though they were Christian & they hoped one day to move to a Christian country. Teenagers are always not happy about restrictions, but we did feel sympathy for them.
7.Visit the Greek Orthodox church of Mari Girgis (St. George). Built on the ruins of an ancient church, it has a unique circular hall dating to the 13th century AD. http://www.touregypt.net/gstgeorge.htm Correction: The adjacent monastery of St George belongs to the Patriarchate of Alexandria, but is not the seat of the Patriarch of Alexandria. His seat is at Alexandria.
5.Visit the Virgin's Tree at Zeitoun. According to a tradition, this is the tree where the Virgin rested with the Child Jesus when they came to Egypt.
This old cairo is an area where you can visit some old churches and old christian settlement thousands of years ago and here is where history witness some wars. Its all about history....
