Things I Wish I Knew Traveling To Egypt

Tip Number 5

Be respectful of the call to prayer when you are out in public. This has nothing to do with religion in my opinion, it is a sign of respect for the culture of the country and a few moments of each day to do a bit of mindful reflecting. I am not sure if I fully understood the magnitude of prayer 5 times a day until I saw passengers on the plane roll out mats during the flight. I had no idea that the call would sound loudly across the city and send chills up my spine in wonder despite me not knowing the language.

So if you choose, use that as a time to pray yourself, but if not, please be respectful as you would if it were your own religion or spiritual practice.
