Favorite thing: Ismailia is the capital of the Suez Canal area, and it's also called City of Gardens and Flowers... you can easily guess the reason. It's half-way between Cairo and Port Said, it's in the Sinai region, and it's located on the shore of Al-Temsah Lake. A temsah, by the way, is a crocodile - so maybe you might not want to swim in this lake.
Fondest memory: Ismailia
Ismailia, or at least part of it, is a beautiful colonial city, with old houses and wide avenues lined with trees. It was founded by
Khedive Ismail (hence the name) together with the construction of the canal - as a dormitory town. Today it's a city of 300000 people, and a popular tourist resort for rich people from Cairo. At the weekend, it's buzzing with life.
