Breakfast at Costa Coffee and then off to the Citadel. The Citadel, as you would guess, was used as a fortress, a palace, and a mosque. Now, the greatest section of it is two different mosques (is the plural right or is it, mosqui?) The Mohammed Ali mosque is the largest which commands its presence on the hill top overlooking Cairo. The inside has rugs everywhere and you have to take your shoes off. Cairo is not for the faint of heart when it comes to sanitation. :) The other is the An-Nasir Mohammed mosque. This one has a certain charm about it that I liked more than the other. One point of interest was the tops of the minarets, the twisted finials, are covered in glazed tiles. Something rarely seen in Egypt. Also, the dome is tiled in the same color of sea-foamish green. Despite your feelings toward sea-foam green, it looks very nice and not a color seen in Cairo much.
Inside the Citadel is also the National Police Museum and the National War Museum. One section of the NPM, is the assassination section. One leader in particular, I was actually looking for. Former President, Anwar Sadat. He wasn't in there. I asked around and found out that there was some bad blood still being felt about that and his assassination was left out.
I pretty much spent the rest of the day in a coffee shop doing work and looking for the next set of travel plans. Looks like Luxor is on the horizon. Hung out in my room that night and watched TV. Easy going.
