Shady had two papers and a test due today, so after breakfast/lunch Heba and I walked to the Cairo Museum, which was close to where we stayed. We couldn’t bring cameras in, so we enjoyed the museum by itself. It was incredible how many statues and artifacts they had packed into one room or another—Heba and I thought that if the US had even one of those pieces, we would build an entire building to house it.

We were going to venture up the Cairo Tower as well, but it turns out that the workers were on strike, so we couldn’t do that. Instead, we sat by the Nile and talked, met up with Shady and his roommate Boula for one last time together, and said our goodbyes. Heba had class on Monday so Shady was going to take me back to the airport instead.

(The title of this post is a pun referencing in a camp song called “Hi-yah hi-yah”).

“Then they said, ‘Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth.’” ~Genesis 11:4
