So, 3:30 rolled around and it was time to meet Amy and Eli. I had decided to take Eli to get a good milkshake. Where? The Hard Rock Cafe, of course. We walked down to the Hyatt on the Nile and ducked inside for a few hours as we consumed great food. Here's one for ya... One of the classic menu items at any HRC is the pulled pork sandwich. But, if you remember, pork doesn't go over too well in an Islamic culture. So, at both the Cairo and Sharm El-Sheikh cafes, the pulled pork sandwich was replaced with the 'pulled lamb sandwich.' What makes this really funny, is that they keep the remaining description. It says that it is a "real" southern classic. I am sure that some southerners have had lamb, but to say that it is a classic...well, i just don't think so.
We caught a cab back to Zamalek where we got coffee at a cafe called the Costa Cafe. British owned and not too bad. Best coffee I have had in Egypt. :) Got it to go and proceeded to walk the neighborhood in search of a phone for Amy. When arriving back to the hotel, I learned that I could get a TV put in my room for a little under $2. And, there is a great movie channel. What a deal! I admit, today wasn't a huge 'touristy' day, but it sure has been nice to relax.
