Our breakfast view of Cairo for our first week

One of my favorite things during my first week in Cairo was having breakfast in the restaurant of our hotel which is on the 11th floor in Zamelik, an island in the Nile.  One whole wall of the restaurant was all windows and the weather here is always beautiful and sunny so this was our view every morning.  We had a wonderful buffet breakfast of croissants with cheese or jam, hard-boiled eggs, gratefruit, and tea.  I see the Egyptians make tea the same as the British:  it starts with a cupful of hot milk then the teabag is added to that.  Nothing better than to have a couple cups of tea in the morning while looking at these views.
