Smog over the Nile

A city with more than 20 millions can not avoid to produce waste and pollution but Cairo, rich in history but poor in ressources produces far more of it than richer megacities.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Rich history, interesting life, very friendly people
  • Cons:DIRTY!!!!

    Evocative pics. Would have liked a little more detail on the museum exhibits and Sakkara. So tantalizing.

    Very Interesting collection of pages. The pictures are quite spectacular. I'm enjoying your pages, and hope to see more before I leave for Mumbai (Bombay), SOON, where I will board a cargo ship for five months voyage.

    Great Cairo page! Funny thing about the first two coaches only for women. It's not very convenient and interesting for a couple travelling:)

    I have been to Egypt twice, but never to Cairo. Will not miss another time though.
