Cairo Embrace

Embrace by Keri Douglas, 2009, Copyright Protected

At night, all of Cairo is by the water enjoying the cooler temperatures and fresh air.  Thousands walk by the river.  Families join together for evening picnics. Many enjoy the parks along the river side and watch the party boats.  Young couples share a quiet moment on the bridge possibly their only time together during the day.  Street vendors sell cooked corn as they grill on the bridge’s edge. For those who want a more private romantic setting, there is a small private sculpture garden in Zamalek close to the Qasr el-Nil (Tahir) Bridge.  The scenes are poetic and timeless.
