Cairo: day 4

The best things about Cairo so far: An abridged and subjective list

1. My new tiny cellphone, the alarm of which bleats “it’s time to wake up” in a British voice
2. Potted plants in the middle of the street
3. 85-cent cab rides
4. Rubber trees
5. Eucalyptus trees
6. Nile life (post tk)
7. Coke light
8. Military presence (actually could go either way on this one)
9. Surprising lack of camel paraphernalia
10. Working in a literal war room (this is actually No. 1)
