The American University in Cairo works Sunday-Thursday with Friday and
Saturday as weekend days.
However, they get Islamic holidays, Roman Catholic based Christian holidays,
Orthodox Christian holidays and United States holidays.
So they really don't study much there... :-))
And the Muslims round here (the east end of London) seem to work Monday-Friday
although there is apparently increased mosque activity on Fridays.
