Cairo bazaar- with 9 year old

We are travelling to Egypt for 4 days in July, at one point we will be at the bazaar. I have 2 questions:
1. Is it safe enough to take our 9 year old son?

2. What is the best type of currency to take for use in the bazaar

I was just at the bazaar last Thursday. I felt perfectly safe so I say that it will be safe for your 9 year old. My main concern would be losing him. The place is very crowded and some streets are very, very narrow alleys. Your biggest challenge will be keeping track of your son. Invariably when I asked how much something cost I was asked if I wanted the price in dollars or Egyptian pounds. I used Egyptian pounds my whole trip.
