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 Museum first.

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.
