Walking around the less privileged areas of Cairo is certainly a humbling experience. The majority of the city's population lives in very poor conditions, yet Egyptians generally have no shortage of food, due to the country's extensive agricultural tradition. Attached are photos of some of the interesting local food and produce I've encountered in the streets of al-Qahira.
