Photographer's Note

We were in Cairo - just a few months before the uprising began in 2010. And it was so peaceful that we couldn't just match the photographs in the newspapers with those that we had.

Cairo has been a Tourist destination for centuries.... Moses ....
This is a scene of a quiet alley in Coptic Cairo - that part of Cairo that was predominantly Christian. The narrow alleys look ancient. The people quiet and friendly. There are also a few Churches in the area.
I am not really sure if the peace and quite of the area still exist.... But I suppose life goes on, as is there in those beautifully framed Black & White photographs of Cairo and the Pyramids on a display that covers the full wall. The salesman sits on the patch of sun and shade - reading the newspaper. I guess, he will know when there is a real buyer around.
