Islamic Cairo

These photos were taken during a walking tour through the back streets of Islamic Cairo.  Our guide was one of our own colleagues from the AIS East campus.  Ryan is incredibly knowledgeable on the history of the area.  This section of Islamic Cairo is filled with amazing architecture, history, and people which I have made an attemp to capture with these images.  Many of these streets are rarely visited by tourists and the mosques are truly local with several undergoing extensive restoration.  Even still, the welcomes we received, as always, were overwhelmingly friendly.
