Your Ultimate Guide on What to Do in Cairo If You’re Stuck During Easter
by Jaida Khaled
So Easter is here and for the unfortunate ones that are stuck in Cairo, I’d like to inform you that you have nothing to worry about. All my friends are already in Gouna and Dahab having an eggcellent time, but I refuse to wallow in self-pity because I haven’t pre-planned my Easter better. So I’ve compiled a list of shindigs, for y’all who are in the same position as me, to enjoy in the capital.
