December 16, 2010 – Cairo, Egypt
Cairo is one crazy city – I like it! Some serious hustle and bustle. Just crossing the road is an adventure sport. To give you an idea of the scale of chaos we’re talking about:
- • 20 million people live in Cairo
- • 5 million more commute into the city each day
- • 2.5 million cars are on the road
- • Cairo’s roads were built for 500,000 cars
Here I am with my street vendor buddies. They even let me get behind the cart and pretend to serve up some grub!
(OK, the truth: the real reason I like Cairo is because everyone keeps calling me Shakira).
