By that I mean all our cousins and aunts from both sides of the family...it was all women and children .
Although we had some grumpy moments from some people who cannot seem to enjoy themselves at all ...yes you know yourselves...the over all experience was good & lots of fun...
Our 1st stop was at Fagnoon
It's other name is Sabil Om Hashim.It's run by some amazing artists....they really know how to get the kids excited about arts.
fagnoon is located on Sakkara Road, Giza
Once we got there the children and some of the more un-inhibited adults enjoyed playing on the monkey bars
Then we paid the fee of 45 LE for every participating child or adult.
they gave us a presentation of all the things we can do.
You can choose from
pottery, wood carpentry, agriculture, baking, jewelry making, iron smithy ,bead work,drawing with colored sand,and others.
They also give you a choice for a mud fight or a colors fight where they fill small plastic bags with colored water & you get to throw it at each other.really messy and fun stuff.
To reach fagnoon follow these instructions:
To reach Fagnoon from the Pyramids Road, turn on the Maryoutiya Canal towards Saqqara. Fagnoon is 12.5 kilometers down the canal.
If one is traveling by public transport, take a microbus in the direction of Saqqara and ask the driver for a drop off at Sabil Umm Hashem.
If one is coming from the Mounib Ring Road, take the Badrashein- Maryoutiya exit. From this point it is 9.5 kilometers to Fagnoon.
One of the things one will notice just before arriving is a bridge named after Nobel prize winner Ahmed Zuweil over the canal.
ofcourse everyone opted for the pottery it's so much fun
