In Cairo, a moment of serenity amid the cacophony

Jeffrey Fleishman is the Cairo Bureau chief for the Los Angeles Times. His articles always capture the true essence of Cairo living.

This article is especially wonderful, its so descriptive and just transports you to Cairo. He really did sum up a typical day in Cairo up so well.


  1. Yes, it is so typical. I have to pass this on to hubby, he will no doubt enjoy reading about his beloved Cairo.

  2. That just sounds so fascinating to me. I was never able to tolerate living in cities but I do love to visit them. Something about the level of energy in a city, it's too much for my brain to handle on a long term basis.

  3. fascinating, the poetry of chaos.
    it reminds me of Brazil in many ways, it takes a special kind of outlook or as the french would say "regard", to find these moments of serenity.

  4. Wow, that is a lot to take in. I like to think it is what I would imagine it to be, but pretty much know that I can't possibly comprehend.
