Light a Candle for Cairo: The Church of St. George.
We at WAC/P rarely attend religious services in any nation or jurisdiction. However, we have marveled for years at both the quality of artistry (in architecture, sculpture and painting) and depth of resources historically devoted to church interiors. In fact, exploring the alcoves and niches of the world's older Catholic churches is--at least in our fogged-up Cosmos--one of the most sensual things you can do with your clothes on after leaving U.S. soil. But go once alone. It's amazing who's in there. Most sanctuaries are open to the public during the business day and a good while into the evening. At Ms. Maryam's My Marrakesh, see her July 2010 post featuring photos she took off this church's interior in Cairo.
