On Saturday, I finally found a quiet place to sit in Cairo: the opera house complex in Zamalek. This complex has a couple of art galleries, and also a central place to sit with classical music playing. I sat and ate a sandwich there and nobody harassed me. And then I sat inside the gallery and just enjoyed the quiet. What bliss! Here are a couple of my favourite images from the Egyptian museum of modern art. I will post some more over the next few days.
