Went into Cairo in the afternoon & visited Greek Scout Headquarters - The Greek Scouts are even more friendly than the British though they speak little English = Had tea at the Soldiers' Café & then with 2 young Egyptians as guides went out through Shoubra .
Saw a pidgeon shooting match & then walked down to the Nile – Watched the fellaheen
making cutting up straw & also had a good look at a Sakya which is used for watering the fields (as well as the shadouf) – Got back to Gezira about 9 p.m.
