We'll have time for a break to try some tea and a shisha pipe and perhaps enjoy an early dinner of Egypt's unofficial national dish, Kushari.

Finally we visit the evening Al Guri Sufi show at the Wikalat al Ghuri, a 16th centry marketplace with a domed roof and beautiful Islamic architecture. Large crowds of locals and some tourists flock to the place twice a week to witness the colourful and flamboyant show, with displays of dervish inspired dance, sufi vocals and vibrant percussion.
