The recent mayhem in Cairo this month has compelled me to post these photos...

Taken from the riverside patio of a restaurant in the Maadi district (just south of Garden City). About 2 weeks ago, the restaurant was torched & burned down to the ground! A serene image...who knew that (in less than 2 years time) it would be the scene of such violent upheaval?



A westward shot of The Nile from downtown Cairo. Taken from the rooftop swimming pool at the Hilton World Trade Center which was looted 2 weeks ago.
