:: Legacies of Cairo ::
Her Monuments and her People

The culture and traditions of Old Cairo, which dates back to 641 A.D. extend not only to its magnificent structures, but also to its people. My visits with ‘Ghaber’ the shoemaker who insisted on shining my dusty shoes, ‘Om Saleeb’ who invited me in for tea and asked me to find her an American husband, and ‘Father Cheroubian’ whose eyes captured and reflected the joy of a monk’s simple life, reminded me of the proud yet ordinary and humble spirit of Cairenes::
