Photographer's Note

View on the Nile and the down town (or as I noticed on one traffic sign down twon) of Cairo.

1. the capital city of Egypt and the largest city in Africa and the Arab World

2. population (city + metro area): 24 million people

3. the sixteenth most populous metropolitan area in the world

4. The City of A Thousand Minarets

5. and the city with the most traffic I have ever seen. Cairo traffic is known to be overwhelming and overcrowded. Endless lines of cars that are not in accordance with modern CO2 exhaust regulations. No wonder that city is covered with the veil of smog all day long.

Taken from Cairo tower.
