In this beautiful tour of words and deeds, history and architecture
are elegantly braided together. Travel back in time to the splendid
sights and sounds of historic Cairo, the fabled bridge between ancient
Egypt and modern Egypt.

In this tour, I shall prove that there exists an architectural
historian technique whereby history can be interpreted through
architecture. Behold! Seddik technique is unique.

"Travel. Set out and head for pastures new. Life tastes richer when
you've rode warm feet. No water that stagnates is fit to drink, for
only that which flows is truly sweet ...." - Ibn Battuta

"behind the gates of glory and facades of fame lie unique stories of
rise and fall that teach us to never give in, in nothing great or
small, in the march of history against the juggernaut of time. When
domes dominate a relief of belief reveals the architecture of history
in the history of architecture through abodes beyond the boundaries of
death.

The minarets dot the I's and cross the T's of architecture, furnishing
a Rosetta Stone to untangle the web of history. The palaces of
startling elegance provide visual biographies highlighting the
salience of sailing in the sea of history and granting us a passport
to the past.
