It seems that one of the Seven Wonders of the World is not enough to discover a country that despite the years and decades not lose that air of mystery, history and scenic beauty as eternal city Cairo, Egypt. Walking in the corners of Cairo is perhaps an experience hard to forget, especially by large contrasts meters from the Pyramids of Egypt.
First of all, am already amazed to see a postcard as a great city that is cut off abruptly by the beginning of a desert with the pyramids. Who is located in this area certainly can not stop thinking about how a character place in world history can live with the proximity of a city and its modernity.
Egypt is a country composed of 95 percent sand and desert only 5 percent is city. It is unthinkable how you can achieve a degree of progress and development with an area barren and lifeless as the desert, compared with other countries.
Back in Cairo, this story tells us to remind us that here crosses the River Nile, and across thousands and thousands. Some say that in Cairo in the morning, traveling more than 20 million people, but that afternoon, that figure is 50, by the arrival of people from nearby regions and less so.
The whole city looks like an ocher, then its old buildings bear strong windstorms which, added to the nonexistent rain wear buildings with sand. The most important advice to cross it is to know that here, all that money is traded. If we are to take a taxi, there is no fixed cost, everything is agreed after a brief but tense negotiations. So, this way we can go a stunning city with historic buildings and the eternal Pyramids background.
