Egyptian Ballroom


This is what I love: a vast, empty ballroom just waiting for me to waltz like a whirling dervish. It is a part of the Manasterly Palace on the Nile in Cairo, and is now used for concerts. Click to enlarge.

What a fabulous room, but I wouldn't like to have to clean away the cobwebs! Do whirling dervishes waltz? Surely a whirling dervish is a waltzer on speed (at the very least!).
