Very interesting mosque, and the Sultan Hassan was outstanding. Beautiful sites in a fabulous city.
Our first stop was Beyt Sobek and the ruins of the ancient town that was along the road between Cairo and Fayum. Not much to see here as we wandered amongst the rocks. Then we went to see the waterwheels, which disappointingly were two wheels behind a wrought iron fence (not like the pictures we'd seen). We went to lunch at a restaurant on the lake and then on to Meidum (best part of the trip). We would have liked to have spent more time on seeing some better examples of the nearly 200 wheels and understanding their function. Meidum, the first attempt at the step pyramid, was very interesting...especially since the next day we were going on to Daschur.
Fabulous!!! Our guide was so much fun, and she obviously has a passion for food. She had us trying all kinds of things, and she showed us great places to buy some gifts for friends. If you like to sample the food culture, this is a trip for you!!
