Known as "The City of a Thousand Minarets" and the largest city in Africa, and the Arab World and one of the most densely populated cities in the world. I on Saturday afternoon and heading out tomorrow morning, Tuesday, after two days of work.

Cairo, the heat and the sounds of car horns, the call to prayer and voices all drape themselves over this city. A thousand shades of ochre. yellow dawn, light brown midday, sometimes a reddish tint in the afternoon to evening purple. A ochre is the colour by which to set your watch in Cairo.
