Cairo is a strange bird. Commercially, it is more Americanized than any place we have been on this trip. Culturally, it is by far the most different from home.

They've got your GAP and your Aldo. Your TGI Fridays and your Cinnabon. The mall here is absolutely outrageous. At 10pm on a Wednesday night, there must have been 5,000 people there.

Seven floors of retail mahem, which you may enjoy after being inspected by bomb-sniffing dogs and screened by a metal detector.

We had our first cinematic experience here since leaving home - Toy Story III. 3D fun was had by all!

We also perused the selection at Virgin Megastore, tried on the latest fashions at H&M, and ate a personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut.
