Some scenes from the streets of Cairo. Photos by Glenn Belverio

P1120717

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I’m back in New York, jet-lagged, cold and hoping my lost suitcase turns up. I took these photos on my third day in Cairo during a madcap taxi ride to see the Coptic churches. I travel the world a lot but nothing had quite prepared me for my first full-on exposure to the chaotic streets of Cairo. It was a bit unsettling for the first few minutes, but that wonderful high of culture shock–my drug of choice–soon set in and I was instantly addicted to Cairo’s raw, raucous energy.
