And you thought your traffic was bad?

Welcome to Cairo Traffic (this is on a good day)


and Parking situation..


Now, stop whining! 


  1. Just like Caracas!

  2. That highway picture – cars are straying out of the lanes too.

  3. Lanes? What are those?

    In Egypt, lanes are not recognized by the people.

  4. Now that wasn’t the case 11 years ago for sure.

  5. SM,

    Where are those pictures? I can’t even recognize the places :(

  6. ^1st picture looks like Gam’eit El-Dowal and the 2nd one is probably downtown..

  7. So does everyone get ticked off when the person who owns the vehicle closest to getting out of the parking lot has to stay late at work.

  8. you’d think joanne but cue ‘el menadi’, prime this guy with a few pounds and he can get your car out from the most inconvenient of places. All cars are parked with handbrake down so this guy can play musical cars with them, shifting them across this way and that till he gets yours out. Obviously, the more you slip this guy, the less bruised your car is after he’s finished with it- it’s a lucrative job.

  9. the second picture is taken from right next of the Judges club. intersecting with abdel Khalek Tharwat. downtown
