Scenic Sunday: Egypt

Perhaps not the pretiest scene, but one that speaks a thousand words about Cairo. It was strange as one minute there was an enormous rush of cars coming along this narrow path and the next nothing! Not a car in side! I truelly wish I could have put the smell of Cairo in a bottle so you could smell. It's best discribed as a warm mix herbs <3>

What a commotion! The balcony on the left looks like a real hand made job and could fall down any minute! You have really captured the essence of the scene.

For a small city girl, this scene is a little over the top. I don't know if I could deal with this type of traffic! Great photo though!

There is so much going on in such a small street scene. I can just imagine all of the interesting smells that makes it the unique place to be.

I wish I could smell that as well. Amazingly active area. Every town street is so unique.

There is a genocide in Palastine.

you should know that sadly, every person is the maid of Jews except Jews according to distorted Torah.
The attacks of Israel over Palastinians are the tactic of votion on Jenuary.Israel is the occupying government.we should prevent cruelty of Israel in Don't drink coco-cola. don't support Israel..Do not smoke marlboro. Do not support Israel

Boycott those companies, do not buy blood of children in Gaza...!!!!!!!

Burger King,
River Island,
Jaffa oranges, lemons and other fruits,
Starbucks Cofee,

and their products like for example:

coffee (Nescafé), chocolate, yoghurt, clothes, cell phones, cosmetics, baby food, fast food restaurants, cinemas, perfumes, soft drinks (Coke, Diet Coke, Fanta, Sprite, 7up, Dr Pepper, Mirinda, water: Bonaqua, Naleczowianka - in Poland, Aqua etc.) and many others.

Beware of products from Israel. These may be also recognised by their code - read the numeral codes on the products. First 3 digits are the signature of the country of producent or country of origin. Israel is: 729... .

Boycott Israel, now!
