Obama’s 16 hours for sure will be so busy . I do not think and I am half his age that I would be able to visit all those places, to address a whole nation worldwide then to have a Press conference and may be mutual negotiations with a President of another country in just 16 hours !!!
Obama technically will visit Cairo from the very East to the very West.
Of course He will visit the Giza Pyramids Plateau which does not need more explanation.
Obama will visit the historical Mosque of Sultan Hassan , he is really a lucky man , I wish that I visit that magnificent Mosque in Cairo, it is considered one of the most oldest and beautiful Mosques in Egypt . It is in the East of Cairo . You can imagine the distance between the two places !! Here is its location on the map
Obama will stay in the Kobbah or Koubbeh Palace where he will meet Mubarak and have a press conference there. The Koubbeh Palace was and is still the most important and beautiful Palace after Abdeen Palace. It is was a Royal Palace then it became a Presidential Palace. It is our main guesthouse or rather guest palace. Legend says that it is the only Palace outside Libya Qaddafi adores to stay inside its wall. The pictures from inside the Palace are not too many online , people usually mix between it and the magnificent Abdeen Palace. I know the difference very well between them for God Sake ,even the names of the chambers !!!
Here are some few shots, unfortunately they are for the palace from outside. This is the palace where Farouk and Farida wedded in legendary wedding.Here its location. By the way the American flag is currently on it from now !!
I am amazed in the choice of Koubbeh to be honest because when Vladimir Putin came to Egypt Mubarak hosted him in the Abdeen Palace in a very rare occurrence !!
You have the maps , can imagine how it will be in Cairo and Giza if he does not use a chopper !!??
Newspapers already say to the people stay at home for God Sake !!
