Once there, visit Nagrig, the village where he was born, and enjoy a walk in the village street. See his former home and school, which was later named after him, before heading to Osmathon Football Club where Salah first played football (soccer). Throughout your tour, get a glimpse of life in the Egyptian countryside. Learn about how farmers cultivate their lands, which tools they use, and the traditional methods they use. Have the chance to drink a traditional tea with them in their break, and walk by the canals they use to irrigate their land.
