Al-Muizz l is one of the oldest streets in Islamic Cairo, Egypt. It is also one of the longest at approximately one kilometer long. A United Nations study found it to have the greatest concentration of medieval architectural treasures in the Islamic world.

The living spaces know as haram are mostly designed around courts in the center of the structure. The emphasis, unlike in Hollywood movies is not on sex, but on privacy and having a quiet, contemplative place to work, study and live with your loved ones
From this Promontory, you can see much of western Cairo.
The Great Pyramids can be seen, looming in the Distance.

I saw this relic of a bygone era in one of the courtyards of one of the harams we visited on
Al-Muizz Street is a fascinating place, full of small shops, mosques, and places to eat and shop.
Around every corner, we found an interesting place visit and learn about.
many of the Building date back as far as the Middle ages.
In this photo, the Minarets of a nearby Mosque come in to view .
Dr. Hassan and his Associate Islam Gharib gave our tour group a wonderful tour of the wonders of the street.
This is Brother Rockman, a driver I met at the airport at Luxor, It seemed we were destined to meet, Brother Rockman seemed to pick me out of the crowd as someone suitable to be a driver for.
We talked as we drove and got along well. Rockman was pleasant and professional and did not overcharge me, I will seek him out when I return to Luxor.
Traffic is Cairo is a very different Thing from say Traffic in New York City or Washington D.C.
There is a great use of the horn, as many people have yet to come to terms with western standards of road safety, driving within the lines appears to be an option for many and the Government is making improvements in road conditions and safety. It is a work in progress!
Noora and I got up early one day and took a wonderful ride over the temples of Luxor
