On the streets of Cairo

Should you be walking down the old Khan al-Khalil Market in Cairo, take a seat at one of the streetside cafés made of plastic chairs and a small table and order mint tea. If you are lucky, musicians might stop by. We booked them for an hour at the price of a CD and listened to classical Arabic songs by Abdel Halim Hafez and Umm Kalthoum, two of Egypt's most famous singers.
