Shoe Shine

Egypt is hell on shoes. The sidewalks are irregular enough that only someone with a death wish would try to walk in high heels. The most rational choice for footwear is usually a comfortable pair of sneakers, but if you want to impress someone you really should wear good leather shoes. Surprisingly enough, given that our air produces enough dust to fill a shoebox in a week, people here are quite attentive to shiny shoes and you can find someone to give you a quick cleanup almost everywhere.
