Great atmosphere but for me did not each much, too many flies. What I did eat was good The Egyptians were very gracious and friendly as normal. The people at the table enjoyed their food. I personally do not like eating outside in hot countries..

Dr Ragab's effort to recreate how ancient egyptians lived in the past, starting from the story about their ancient Gods story telling, then the egyptians way of living, and Dr Ragab's even recreate the nobleman's home and slave's home, you can get full story and timeline of the history of the ancient egypt
