I didn't really notice what happened as I took the photos, I was just interested in including the Obchod Textil as well, also looking like nothing had changed since the old regime.

Originally this photo showed a lot more of the mosque, but not enough, so I decided to crop almost half of it and just use this part showing an old man crossing the street with his donkey-cart. At least 33 years ago donkey-carts were almost as common as trucks for transporting goods through Cairo.
holmertz (54315) 2016-09-12 07:25:30I met the two younger men in a street where they were waiting for the boy to fix the tyre of their car. They saw my camera and asked me to take a photo of them. I though "why not" and prepared myself. Before I had time to take the photo the old man came walking by. They asked him to join them and without a word he posed beside them. Afterwards he just left without a word. Either he didn't understand what happened, or he was used to do as he was told. At least he didn't show any interest in what was going on.
