    Today marks a special day, particularly for Egypt. The 18th of April is World Heritage Day, and we can expect a number of celebratory activities to commemorate what this day means to a country as rich as our hometown.

    First off, we have the Museum of Egyptian Textiles. Celebrating in El-Moez St., under the name The Second World Heritage Day Festival, this event comes in cooperation with the General Authority for Historical Egypt.

    We also see the Museum of Mohamed Ali’s Palace celebrating under the name, At the Coffee Shop, where a number of performances and activities will be held to elaborate on the cultural significance of Arabic coffee. This will start from 10 am and will include displays of two relics from the Museum’s properties; tools to make coffee that belonged to the Prince Mohamed Ali Tawfik himself. It will be a day of drinking coffee, talking about coffee, and many stories and anecdotes all hailing from our rich culture, and emphasizing the special attachment we have to this drink!
