The Nile River with Cairo in the Background. CAIRO--It's not just an ancient city any longer! Loved all the Egyptian museums, open markets, camels, and of course the Nile River. Cairo is also the only place I have ever set my head on fire! That's right-I set my head on fire when I was using a lighter. It caught my hair-sprayed hair that went up like a firework. Burned my entire bangs off before I could put it out. Definitely don't recommend doing that-But CAIRO-that I 100% recommend.
