From the Traffic Series (Cairo day 6)

As many people in Cairo, we spend daily most of our time on taxi. Compared to Moscow and Istanbul, people here seem to react to crazy traffic jams with admirable endurance, biblical patience (but no passive resignation) and sometimes also irony and fun. Here’s a first essay of our drives – and neighbour-cars – through Monster-City.    Afternoon we also visited the headquarters of  Tahrir’s newspaper on Iran street 59 – one of the most prominent new media risen in Egypt after Revolution. They just debuted a month ago (july 4), leaded by jurno-star Ibrahim Eissa,  one of the most severe critics of Mubarak’s regime. Young, smart, active although very desillusioned staff.  Later I met with boss of On Tv, new star of egiptian free media.
