Something to Look Forward to (Possibly)

It's just been announced, in today's Al Ahram online, that the Ministry of Antiquities is looking to restore the Citadel of Salah ad Din, in Cairo. At the same time ,they are looking to make it more, "tourist friendly."


Not wishing to tempt fate too much, here's hoping that any such plans go ahead smoothly and that more of what is one of the world's great medieval fortresses becomes accessible to those visiting Egypt.

(NB. One of the things I love about Cairo is how many of its old, i.e. Coptic and Islamic, buildings survive, so if they are able to open more of the Citadel to visitors, so much the better.)

I definitely agree with you to have the option to see more of the Citidel would be great. Thanks for making us aware of the news!
