Excuse Me. Come Again?


Some cattle egrets decorate the top of a sign saying "Shubramant, the door to the date". Right. Clear as mud. Probably they meant "the door to the past" as this village is on the road to Abu Sir, Sakkara and Dahshur, but we had fun figuring out wether maybe the date was yesterday, tomorrow, or next Wednesday.

Tareekh in Arabic can be used to mean "date" or as in your sign's case history.
So the sign translates to : Shabramant, the gate to History.

Cheers for your wonderful Cairo Captures:)
