Photographer's Note

I visited the "Coptic City of the Dead" where the have many tombs. A family will build a crypt in which the family is to spend eternity until Christs return. The grave yard was remarkable in that many people Copts were enjoying picnics with the dead relatives. Everything was quite festive!
