Life on The Top Floor


Yet another random architectural wonder from Giza. This peculiar building is on Pyramids Road and I'm honestly not sure what it is other than an amazing waste of space. Will they ever put something on the first...how many?...floors? My daughter suggests that it must be governmental, the wazeeret wazayer? For you non-Arabic speakers that would be the mythical Ministry of Ministries.

Yes, a local friend of mine recognized it and called me to laugh at us with our fancies. Probably the nicest water tower I've ever seen. Most of them don't look anything like this.

WOW! I was awed when I saw this photo and much more when I found out this was a water tank! It is just so artistically made! Greetings from the Philippines!
