Another Traffic Jam


I went riding with a friend to the pyramids of Giza the other day when on our way into the Nazlit Semman area we found ourselves in a narrow alleyway with a heavily laden donkey in front of us and facing the donkey a wide truck taking up most of the alley way in front of the donkey. An Egyptian standoff that the equids eventually won when the truck backed up to a wider spot.

No kidding! The truck backed up?!

Congratulations on the discovery of the new pyramid. That's exciting.

Donkey power trumps horse power! LOL

Most of the cars and trucks in our neighbourhood are fairly equid friendly. Horses are a part of traffic in much of old Cairo and the suburbs that adjoin the farming area that hasn't been eaten by the city.
