 at 8 pm i toke the girls to their frist surprise here in cairo....its a sufi dance concert in "Wikalet El-Ghoury or El-Ghoury Agency"..its an amazing place in El-Hussien in islamic cairo...and Here is where Sultan Qonsuah Al Ghoury, last of the Memluk sultans, used to host foriegn merchants.

This Sufi- type of the Tanura dance has a very special characteristic as it relies heavily on the dancer’s unlimited moves in circles...
