Sham al-nassim in Egypt
The Spring Day or Sham Al-Nassim as Egyptians call, the day which Egyptians used to go out with their families or lovers to spend the whole day on the Nile or at public gardens and eating salted fish. On this day all the governmental and private sectors are off. The Giza Zoo is one the most favorite places that Egyptian families prefer to spend the day with their kids as you can enter the zoo with one pound-ticket and watch all animals. Another way to enjoying that day by going to Nile and rent a falouka for one, two or three hours as you want. From the falouka you can see the most beautiful sites of Cairo without interpreting by noisy atmosphere at streets.
