Photographer's Note

One of the treats in a visit to Cairo is an evening with the Whirling Dervishes. This show is free(!) - and worth far more. It was staged in a mosque in the Khan el Khalilli, but I've heard it has been moved to a site near the Citadel while the mosque was being refurbished.
This guy whirled for 25 minutes -non-stop - I know - I timed him! One hint if you do go -- take earplugs - the music is miked, and the concrete surroundings make it even louder - your ears are ringing as you leave.
