Egypt – part 2

A photographer’s paradise. I took some pictures. I hope you like them!

Virgin Mary and St Simon – the Tanner Cathedral

Warning: To get to this outdoor Coptic orthodox cathedral you need to drive through a fairly poor and smelly part of town with very narrow roads. I recommend using a local rickshaw 🛺 to get you close the entrance rather than a car. It is actually in a neighbourhood called “Garbage City”.

Get ready to haggle a long time or get really high prices if you’re not street savvy.
