By special request (and the fact that these were the first set of pictures I had not yet posted) here are some more pictures of Zamalek, the residential area where I live.
A few months back, I had gone about ten days (since the Dahab trip) without taking a single picture, so I was starting to get a little restless. On January 7th, a friend and I set out just before sunset to try and sneak up to the roof of an apartment building or another high point in Zamalek to get a better angle during the fading light. Unfortunately the bowaabs (doormen) were not having any of it and so we were confined to ground level.
Taken from the bridge connecting Zamalek and Agouza/Doqqi, looking South down (technically up!) the Nile.
"Let's go down to the waterline..."
This is actually looking from Zamalek across to Doqqi/Mohandessin on the other side of the Nile.
This...is probably a dead body. I'm just saying...
My favorite picture from this photo expedition.
More to come soon.
