The scintillating City of the Dead, anecdotally known as Al-Qarafa, is
so full of life and amenities that if you sum, you realize it is more
town than slum. We will be able to label the fabled vast necropolis
and feast our eyes on monuments glorious from the City Victorious.
True to the vision of some of its founders, the City of the Dead has
the power to entertain the mind and retain the body. Around 100,000
Cairenes live here amongst the dead. At the pinnacle of Islamic art,
the monuments are architected to articulate the vision of the stellar
dweller. Picnic among the graves in the City Beyond the Walls!

We attempt to see:

Mausoleum of Ibrahim Pahsa Halim
Tomb of Al-Torjoman
Mamelukes St.
Sultan Ahmed St.

Lying on the east bank of the eastern branch of the Nile, the City of Mansoura is a truly glorious city. Its very name Mansoura, Arabic for victorious, testifies to its rich heritage. At the Battle of Mansoura in 1250, the Egyptians defeated the Seventh Crusade and captured King Louis IX. of France and held him captive in the house of Ibrahim ben Lokman, that we can still visit today.

Mubarak's code of laws had shackled creativity and his Draconian regime had stifled free expression, yet failed to kill them. Now, post-Revolution Cairo is rife with graffiti gracing its walls to extol and reflect on the potent political events that are shaping Egypt and the region. What do these murals mean? What stories do they tell? Explore, interpret and photograph the graceful, gargantuan graffiti in Cairo as you walk along walls full of political street art!

Behind the Sun: Revolutionary Tour of Cairo

Led by Ahmed Seddik

The Revolutionary Tour of Cairo presents an eyewitness epic account of
the rise and fall of a regime, the revolution and the revelations--
the decisive moments that led to the ultimate triumph of the power of
the people and the demise of a tyrant. Through the architectural,
sculptural and literary itinerary I shed a flood of light on the
revolutionary figures in art, politics, economics, poetry and singing.
They are the seminal influential figures who made Egypt revolutionable
and the Egyptians susceptible to revolt. We start from Zamalek and end
in Tahrir. Egypt is a gift of the Nile and the Egyptian freedom is a
gift of Tahrir. Every time I give the Tahriri Tour -- from evolution
to revolution -- I reload it as we, Egyptians, continue the struggle
to eliminate the micro-Mubaraks from the sclerotic institutions in the
country.
