They say you're not a true Egyptian if you haven't tried shisha...

Photos above (apart from first and last) were taken at Shobra, Cairo, where my mother grew up.

I need to go more places where people don't threaten you when you point a camera at them.

OH they LOVED it at Shobra. They thought I was a friggin' Photojournalist and were excited about appearing in "national newspapers" or so they assumed. LOL. Also, the people in Nasr City (where I live)loved the camera. However I did get threatened at this really islamic area, i.e first and last photo were taken. If it wasn't for my dad, I would have been arrested/killed. I guess they're just scared, mainly from the media, I'm guessing..

Pretending to be a photojournalist...devious.

I like it.
