1. Al Azhar Park is a well designed relaxing park overlooking Cairo. It has a lake, cafes, restaurants and lots of green grass to fall asleep on. Although women really aren’t supposed to lay down as my roommate Min found out when a guard shook his finger at her in disapproval.¬†Other than that, it’s an inviting place where Cairenes are busy with their families and aren’t really interested in foreigners. A welcome respite from suspicious downtowners.¬†
