• Hey my fellow travellers!

    I am in Cairo for a couple of more days and since I have been here before I am looking to see something different this time. There is a Christian area in Cairo where the Zabbaleen people live. They survive on taking care of the wastes of their neighbourhood and also they raise pigs. I read about it a little bit on Wikipedia, but I would really love to go. According to my friend there is also a really nice church at the site, is anyone up for a small adventure? I want to do it during daytime, because at night I hans out with my friend (who works in the day). Ma3 salama, inshallah hear from you soon.. ;)

    Hello Terèse
    well, I know Coptic Cairo but not very well, but of course I know the church, it's called the Hanging Church, one of the best, oldest places that u mustn't miss, also in Coptic Cairo there's Jewish neighborhood where's prophet Moses has been picked up by Pharaoh, so it's really amazing area, but I don't know much about Zabbaleen Area, but we shall ask about it, so
    if u want really to have unforgettable time, u should make a tour in Coptic Cairo and Islamic Cairo at the same day, and I am free until next Saturday so, it's my pleasure to make this tour for u, and I am little bit good guide in Islamic Cairo :)
    so let's be in touch :)

    @mohammed Gad the place that she is talking about is not the coptic cairo or the hangging church . she is talking about Manshiet nasr area there a church there

    they call it El zabaleen area because of the people who collect it live there
