Egypt is my native country, my heart and my soul. It is where I learned how to love freedom and why I resent tyranny. Today Egyptians are voting for the future. I am here in Britain, watching them making history and wish I was with them. Here are my photos from my visit last January, the first visit since 12 years, and trust me, it was very emotional.
My Cairo, my Egypt, so if you have never been, have a look….
All the photos are mine,
The River Nile Loved, worshipped and in many occasion, abused.
A sign post of US Aid project in Pyramids area. Standing alone and neglected
The cutest kid in Giza
The Foul Car ( the food of the poor, but loved by the rich too)
Girls in Public secondery school. All Wearing Hijab
Girls in a private catholic school
A Niqabi woman , the new reality.
Girls from very tender age work hard to earn a living.
My school Yes, Italian !
Again, my school
Mar Morcus Church Heliopolis. You can call me an honouree Copt and this is my Church!
I spent my childhood playing in its courtyard with my Coptic friends after finishing school ( just opposite ) so as far as my concerns, it is mine too.
sadly, at this visit, I was shouted because I took this photo without permission! how things has changed.
In Heliopolis, there is a church for every known christian sect. This is the Greek Orthodox Church
The Armenian Church
The Baron Catholic Church ( build by a Belgium Baron)
May Egypt stay a tolerant multi-cultural society.
