Cairo Day 1

Around the Middle East

These images are taken on two walks in Cairo, one heading south east from Tahrir square towards the arabic part of town and then back around including a visit to the Egyptian Museum (Photos 1 to 8). For the other I went around in the streets between Tahrir Square and the head quaters of the military police, where most protests have taken place over the last year (Photos 9 to 14).
