This is the first time I've written about my experience in Cairo. My friends and I usually visit Saladin's Castle
once or twice a month. It's an amazing place, and of course, with lots of history. Anyway, around the entrance of the castle there was an old, thin shabby dog. It looked like a cross between a golden labrador and mutt. It didn't bother anyone, except me. I guess it didn't like the looks of me. It started to come close while it growled and showed its teeth! Luckily, my friend stepped in front of me and the dog went away. As we were walking away, I looked back, and the dog went back to his spot in the sand and laid back down. It sent chills down my spine because I was the only one the dog seemed to have had a problem with. After spending a few hours at the castle, we decided to go downtown for lunch. There is a little restaurant that I like, and it is our usual habit to visit the castle then eat Kosheri. Downtown Cairo is a 30 -45 min drive (depending on traffic) from the castle. We arrived at the restaurant and in the corner of my eye I saw the same shabby dog near the entrance. I thought to myself, I was seeing things but that dog was there! My friend became spooked and thought it was gin (spirit) that hated me for whatever reason. While we were eating, we tried to logically figure out how this dog could have gotten there. It made us believe even more that it was a gin. When we left the restaurant the dog was gone. I am very thankful that my friend experienced this strange thing with me. We still talk about it from time to time and still have no explanation for it.
