    Still scrambling to get the house ready for the onslaught of guests? Why not impress them with something a little less traditional and a little more…. unique? We’ve all seen the tin & glass lanterns and the multi-coloured Ramadan fabric, and it’s nice but….. well, it’s not like your house will look any different from the zillions elsewhere in Cairo. 
    Have you ever considered a Japanese-style paper lantern? Or perhaps a contemporary one that will match your house so you don’t have to put it away after Ramadan? 

    Check out these five places where you can get those and more:
