Cairo

The history of Cairo is unbelievable; and the sights are just too beautiful. Cairo contains worlds within worlds, full of charm and contradictions.
It is a maddening city with its incessant crowds, noise and pollution. Yet, it lays out various districts—each part like a different piece of the puzzle,
evoking a fragment of Cairo’s rich 7000 year history. A walk down any street in Cairo is a feast for the senses, and exploring the city beyond the popular
districts and spots is even more fascinating. I can go on walking through those narrow lanes and get lost even though with a GPS !
