Life on the Streets of Cairo

When one thinks of far away and other worldly, one of the places that often calls out is Cairo, Egypt.   Many may instinctively think of the Pyramids of Giza, but their is so much more.  The city is alive and breathing with people - whether it is a packed bazaar, a gathering of Islamic men at prayer or Coptic Christians.  It is not a polished western city, but it is one that you will never, ever forget.

Street Scenes of Cairo:

A bustling street filled with people, horses an even donkey carts pulling ice as seen from Bab Zuweili.

A couple chilling out under in a rare spot of shade.

Western shopping life for Egyptians.

A coptic Christian resting in the shade.

Two young boys waiting outside of church.

Men departing after the facing Mecca for the final prayer of the day.
