T
he highways surrounding Cairo teem with cars and cargo at
all hours of the day and night. The camels in the back of this
pick-up truck seem unfazed by the roar of the surrounding
traffic. I took this photograph in 2009 on Cairo’s Ring Road,
while driving back to the city after a trip to Giza Plateau to see the
pyramids.
