Date Season

One of the best parts of having a lot of visitors is taking them to places that you love. The Wissa Wassef Art Centre is one of those places and my last set of visitors insisted on a second visit because they felt that taking something handmade home really meant more than many of the mass produced souvenirs that they'd seen. This small wallhanging of the date season will be decorating a wall in northern California near Auburn soon, and the owners of the wall will have their own small piece of Egypt close at hand.

A wonderful place with absolutely stunning weaving and batik work. And the story behind the center is amazing also. It's a must-see during any visit to Cairo.
