Group shot of Egypt trip.

The mosque seen behind the group is the Mohammad Ali(Alabaster) Mosque in Cairo. The Mohammad Ali (Alabaster) Mosque in the Citadel was begun in 1830 (finished in 1857) in the Ottoman style by Mohammad Ali Pasha, ruler of Egypt, and founder of the country’s last dynasty of Khedives and Kings. From the arcaded courtyard, you can see a magnificent view across the city to the pyramids in Giza. Just off the courtyard is the vast prayer hall with an Ottoman style dome which is 170 feet above.
