Cruisin' Through Traffic


Cairo is probably one of the few major cities in the world where horse traffic can be found in the downtown core. This was taken on the Corniche in Cairo near the Conrad Hotel, one of our many horse carts moving bags of something heavy among taxis, buses and cars. Most of these horses are Arab crosses, sometimes with a little draft or thoroughbred to increase the size. And horse people think that Arabs are spooky? Not here.

I love your blog! I think it's awesome you live in Egypt; I've always wanted to visit. Do you ever miss the States?

Both my kids are currently in New York City. I miss them, but not the US particularly. They miss Egypt.

I will be in Cairo next week (December 6 through 13). Are there any musical events you can recommend?
