In the old western world we did not bath much after the fall of the Roman Empire. I was wondering if that is the same for the population in Egypt in around 1798. This leads me to 2 questions
1) Did the people in Cairo cultivated bath in the same way as the Romans and did they had big swimming pools as the Romans ?
2) I read that the population in Cairo was about 350 000. Is it fair to say that Cairo was the biggest city in the Arab World at that time and even today? I can't find an Arab city with a larger number of population.
