I’ve been able to get some pictures of some of the fun things about (and will continue to acquire them and post as needed).
Typical Cairo taxi cab (circa 1972) – I haven’t been able to get a photo of the fur-covered dashboards yet, or the neon or strings of lights, but I’ll work on it.
American University in Cairo – although the entire campus will be moving outside of downtown soon, which is disappointing as we love their bookstore.
Tahrir Square – doesn’t really convey the crazed-traffic-feel as I would have liked, sorry.
Outdoor water stations (these were at one of the ancient churches we visited, but I’ve seen them around the city too) – note the chained metal cups – no, we have opted to NOT try these unless it becomes a matter of dire need, and it will NEVER become a matter of dire need.
Baby-carrying method (shoulder-perching).
Road-side tea-seller (these are similar containers to the ones “worn” by the guys around Tahrir).
Watermelon cart – note the full obaya and niqab clothing, too.
Corn sellers -- or men sitting around with a bunch of corn, not entirely sure.
Examples of mashrabiya window shutters (they come in furniture styles too, tables and chairs, and room screens with mother-of-pearl inlay are very popular).
