Live in Cairo long enough...or get off the package tour and you're bound to associate everything with garbage piles. But, perhaps understandably, no one will let you take a picture of the pervasive eyesores. Well I would not be deterred, and just in case you were or will be shielded from them or you got run off when you tried to take a pic I am sharing my little treasures with you.

Enjoy

-Yes, I realize that there are piles of garbage around the world, and bombed out buildings. (See my Beirut page) I grew up in Detroit, so, yeah. There are a million pics of the pyramids, here's something different and expreienced daily.
