Cairo has to be the largest, dirtiest and most congested
city we've seen. It was over a two hour drive from the port in
Alexandria to Cairo. Then another hour to drive through the city. Of
course the object here is to get to the pyramids. We did stop at the
A 'Pepsi" stop along the way.
Part of downtown Cairo.
One way of carrying your vegetables.
Another street scene.
Apartment buildings. These are nice finished ones.
A more typical view of buildings. There is no tax on
buildings which are unfinished, so thousands of buildings are like this,
with the top floor obviously unfinished. People are usually living in
the lower floors.
