Felucca Rides on the Nile + Exploring the Market

After my family, Luke and I went to the Great Pyramids of Giza, we decided to take a relaxing felucca ride on the Nile River in an area of Cairo called Maadi. Even though it was very quiet and peaceful on the water, there was still a lot going on. There were families fishing in their boats, workers pulling sand and silt off the bottom of the river, and my personal favorite, a man in a boat on his cellphone while is young son (or grandson) relaxed laying on his stomach at the front of his boat.

After the felucca ride we went to Khan El Khalili market in search of a backgammon board for Luke – we were successful in finding it!
