(If you would like to book my other experience on this day let me know, and I can make it happen!) (If you need accomodations before or during this experince, there is the option of renting my flat... where this takes place... in the Airbnb “homes” section, to provide ease, comfort, and peace of mind) We will meet at my condo, where we will get to know each other and I will tell you about the day and a little history about the neighborhood and about the food culture of modern Egypt, and what to expect. We will also go over any dietary restrictions or needs. Vegetarians and vegans are welcome! We will then begin our excursion, we will first head out to an open air local fruit and vegetable market, then we will head to my favorite butcher, a local bakery, a fish monger, a cheese shop, a fresh juice shop, and a sweets shop. At each location we will meet and talk with the owners of the shops, We will learn what daily life Can be like for a person in Egypt and learn where the shops source their goods! No experience offers this intimate look at Egyptian daily life! Then we will come back to the apartment and make an authentic Egyptian meal together! And enjoy the night! Akram
