Souqs (Egypt). 'The incessant salesmanship of Egyptians makes more sense when you see it at work in Egypt’s historic heart, the souq. Here vendors are set up cheek by jowl, all hawking their wares in their set district, cajoling and haggling. Visit a centuries-old souq such as Cairo’s famous Khan al-Khalili first, and you’ll see its pattern at work even in ad hoc modern markets such as the Souq al-Gomaa.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/egypt

Relax in a Mosque (Egypt). 'The quiet, shady arcades of a medieval mosque are the perfect place to take a break from modern Cairo. Far from being austere places of worship, many mosques also function as public break rooms – people drop in for a quiet chat or to read a book. Al-Azhar Mosque bustles with theological students, the isolated Mosque of Amr ibn al-As has plenty of room, and the Mosque of Al-Maridani is filled with trees.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/egypt/cairo

Great pyramids of Giza, from Cairo Citadel, Egypt.....This is what the pyramids really look like. Most people think think they are in the middle of the desert.

Coptic Sites (Egypt). 'It was to the barren mountains and jagged cliffs of the sprawling desert that the first early ascetics came, even then seeking an escape from Egypt’s hubbub. Today Coptic monasteries such as those of St Anthony and St Paul, where the tradition of Christian monasticism began, still play an important role in the modern Coptic faith. Visit the four monasteries of Wadi Natrun.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/egypt/wadi-natrun
