Coptic Cairo

Today we went on a visit to Coptic Cairo. We visited the Amr Ibn El-Aas Mosque (which is the oldest mosque in Egypt), the so-called "Hanging Church", the Monastery and Church of St. George, the Church of St. Sergius (Abu Serga), and the Ben Ezra Synagogue (which is Egypt's oldest and dates to the 9th Century).
