Riverfront Property

Along the riverside that parallels the island of Zamalek are lined old houseboats, one of the more exotic and romantic varieties of housing available in Cairo. These are near the northern tip of the island along the Giza shore. It looks more like a resort than one of the craziest cities on the planet.

I think of it as being the driest of the dry there, and look at the river!

Thanks, as usual, for these fascinating glimpses of daily life in the Cairo area.

An interesting blog. I was pleased that I can visit your blog. Egypt know. I was not here. Life is so different. Photo shows a romantic place. Wishes you a nice day Peter.

I remember these houseboats from my trip to Egypt 20 years ago! We stayed on the island of Zamalek.
