As If Driving Isn't Entertaining Enough...


I don't go to Alexandria often but yesterday I had a meeting there and as I came up to the tollgates for the Alex/Cairo Desert Road I was rather astonished to see a huge television or advertising screen perched above the toll booths. Egyptians seem to have leapt in to major advertising compaigns wholeheartedly and the entire Desert Road is littered with billboards large and small. I guess that this is just warning of what lies ahead.

Oh my gosh, I didn't see this last time I was there! I worked at Smart Village so I saw these gates...

But definitely the road between downtown and Smart Village was packed with advertising!
