Cairo is such a colorful city that it seems almost criminal not to share these with the world. I’ve categorized it as a random pictures post since it shows lots of shots that won’t make it into other posts.


Gad is one excellent reason to come to Cairo – their version of fast food is local, authentic, and unsurprisingly pretty fast. Order near the register, then take the receipt to the correct counter (this is the critical order of operations, and not always easy to deduce!)
