Iftar on the Hyatt Boat Part 1

On Thursday night (9/4) we had iftar (iftar is the breaking of the fast, dinner at sundown during Ramadan) on a big ship associated with the Cairo Hyatt to celebrate the completion of our first week of work. Here are some pictures from that trip.

Going up the elevator to the clubhouse on the top floor of the hyatt.

Our own personal Manhattan (Zamalek, where I live). The lower half of the island is all part of a country club that used to be exclusively for British officers, and the upper half holds a lot of embassies and my apartment building.

Now on the dinner boat, we were entertained by a group of musicians who were quick to share their cool hats with us.
