Honor and I joined a girl's day out shopping in a little town called Kirdasa. I'm not sure how, or why, we ever found this place, but it appears to be something of a outlet market town for local clothes and other items. A friend and I like the cotton embroidered tunics and this is a great place to find them. They also have a great selection of adult sized galebeyas - in very simple, to very elaborate, styles, as well as kids' galabeyas and girls' clothes. I invited Brian to come along just to get out and see this other part of the greater Cairo area, but understandably, he was not at all interested in clothes shopping.
Honor had a blast though. Here she is... shopping like an Egyptian! (no, I didn't pose her, she did it herself...)
We stopped a rug shop too. I've bought several items here in the past, including a selection of small weavings - like those hanging behind Honor.
Lounging about looking at the various weavings.
Honor shows off a kitty galabeya we got for her at another store.
Two hangings I liked. I got one like the one on the right, but instead of blues, the sky is red and the desert is in greens and yellows.
I liked this village scene too.
Another nice one with great detail.
and Honor liked this one.
Honor, like the rest of us, got shopped out
