Two intense days in Cairo, prolonging my visa, printing pictures, buying things for the exhibition and meeting couchsurfers.
It’s an entirely different thing to work with an exhibition in a city with twenty million people, traffic jam and everything organized in a way far from the swedish way of doing things.
Ashraf, who is printing my pictures on canvas, does the color calibration in his way, by changing the colors in my files, well it works, hopefully … I haven’t got all the prints yet.
Anafora has a flat in central Cairo, just three blocks from the Tahrir square. I took those pictures from the windows.
All the small streets around Tahrir are blocked, so I had to walk in a circle to get to the flat. And yes, there are a lot of cars in Cairo.
View from the window in the staircase.
In the evening I joined the Cairo couchsurfing group who had organized a boat trip on the Nile with a felucca, a traditional sailing boat.
