A few more pictures of my trip to the Khan last weekend. I've mentioned before that this is one of the oldest areas in Cairo with incredibly old buildings. They are doing some work right now on Tentmaker Street.
I'm fascinated with the scaffolding here. Lumber that is just tied together with rope. You'll also see workmen running around wearing their flipflops. And hardhats? Forget about it. Not that anyone was doing work the day we were down there.
That's a pre-printed tent fabric there on the right. The other items are Beduoin carpets.
I took a day off the day before yesterday and watched DVDs and hand-quilted. I finally got to see the new version of Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightly all the way through (I watched the first half on an airplane once but it was coming in really poorly and I gave up in frustration). Loved it, but Keira is waaaaay too gorgeous to be Lizzy, tho she was perfect in every other way. I still love the BBC miniseries, but it is definitely more sedate and the actresses playing the younger sisters are waaaaay too old. Nice to have both options.
Also watched another episode of my beloved Kolchak the Night Stalker and a Moonlighting. I'm not even sure I made it all the way through the latter, but it doesn't really matter - not one of the better ones.
I have now finished the third go round of freehand fans on Terms of Endearment. I'm really happy with it.
