Tom the backroads traveller hosts this weekly meme.
I am reposting this from 2014 as it is fun to re-read some of our travels.
November 2007 - Cairo Egypt
I'm continuing our first day of touring in Cairo.
On the road as we left the Step Pyramids in Sakkara there are several carpet making schools on both sides of the road.
As you enter you will see women and children making actual carpets based on complex designs. You can watch how they stitch and knot the carpets and see the different materials in use.
