I love walking the streets of a city early in the morning or in the late evening. That is when everyone is out either hurrying to or from work, shopping, visiting family, going about their daily business. This woman tries to keep warm in the early morning, before the sun has warmed the sidewalks, and hawks her bread and newspapers to passersby.

Egyptian bread, somewhat like a pita, is flat and easy to stack on pallets such as this to carry around the city. I’ve seen families buy whole racks of bread to feed their family for the day. The flatbread is delicious, especially warm.

It’s one of my favorite memories from my Egypt trip.

How about you, what did you enjoy most in Egypt?
