Little Boxes


I had to go to the Agricultural College at the University of Giza to get some feed analyses done. This was the first time I'd ventured into this part of the university, and in the process of finding the right office for the analyses I got to see rather a lot of the campus. This interesting field of rectangular tents was just outside the center for research into the diseases of onions and garlic. The flowers inside the tent look a lot like onions to me.

That's pretty cool.
Brings to mind the Arabic saying which Israelis have adopted: Yom asal, yom basal.

Yeh, Cairo University (which ironically is actually in Giza not Cairo) is amazing. I've attended training in growing mushroom once near there.
