The Muezzin of Sultan Hassan

The muezzin of Sultan Hassan was a very kind man, who took a particular liking to Ike.

Allowing him to sit on the rahla, where the qur'an is usually placed and read from...

Smothering him with kisses...

Showing him pictures of his kids. "This is Mohammed. This is Ahmed. And this is Saleh and he's a baby just like you!"

Naturally, showing off his sweet vocal skills and the acoustics of the dome.

And lastly, impersonating Barrack Obama. Last year, when Obama visited Cairo he went to the pyramids, Cairo University and the Sultan Hassan Mosque!
"You know, Obama? Just like this."

It was a pretty good impersonation.

I love the look on Ike's face while the fellow is singing. What an amazing voice.
