After our above mentioned lunch with the local stable boys. Helen who is perfume mad, wanted to visit the perfume shop opposite the stables.

So Ashraf, Helen & Myself headed off the the perfume shop. The Mayor of Giza owned the shop, it was his son who we met. He took us in to a comfy red room & started the perfume selling schpeel.
But he was SO FUNNY, we were in stitches laughing for what seemed like hours with his stories of "Arabian Nights".

Helen bought 2 perfumes, and Ashraf bought me some perfume, (think he felt sorry for me)

We also saw his guest book with a note & signature from Eric Clapton & his wife (I can not remember her name) when he visited in the 70's.

All in all a very memorable and fun day (~_~)


Perfume shop is accross the square from the stables
