Cairo's Friday Market

Welcome to the Friday Market!

Need a severed camel foot? You can get it here.

Need a new, colorful comforter? Get it here (although it might smell like a camel foot).

Need a specific faucet head to match your sink?

In case you get hungry, there's always...lunch?

Need a new toilet from the garbage pile in the street? Everything has a price.

On January 16, a friend of mine and I went down to the weekly Friday Market in Islamic Cairo. Held in the middle of the City of the Dead, it is a market where you can find nearly anything you want (as long as you aren't looking for something made more recently than 1974).

He didn't seem to mean too much harm with this gesture...

Check below for some HDR images from the Friday Market.

do they use the camel feet to make soup?
