Getting Away On Friday


Cairo is one of the most densely populated cities in the world and unfortunately it has very few parks. Friday being the day that most people have off from work, many families try to get a bit of fresh air and look for a place where the kids can have good time. On the main roads out near my farm there are restaurants specialising in country cooking, grilled chicken, quail, stuffed pigeon, salads and so on. Many of them have some open land where kids can try pony rides, take a ride in a carriage and so on. This is about as close as many children will ever get to a farm or anything other than urban living.

I like your photograph but also liked the story you tell in describing it.

I figure that some of these photos wouldn't really mean that much without some explanation. Nice to see someone of my generation enjoys my photos.
