Ped Xing


I shot this through the front window of my jeep (I wasn't driving!) because I simply couldn't believe the sign. But it is a pretty good representation of the best ways to cross the road in Cairo/Giza.

Ha! Have you ever heard the NPR episode where they talk about the things you "learn" as a child and always take for true until someone finally (teasingly) corrects you as an adult? One lady always thought "xing" was a word onto itself and pronounced "zing." I wish I could find that episode again.

What an incredible sign! I take it not all of them are like that?

This is the only sign like this I've ever seen.
