Cairo Inspiration

cairo“All that is gold does not glitter/ Not all those who wander are lost,” wrote J.R.R. Tolkien in the first Lord of the Rings book when describing the lost king/ranger Aragorn.

Cairo was so deserted when we visited last summer, during the election of now-deposed President Mohammed Morsy. This picture of the solitary camel rider, with few tourists to sell his camel rides to, captures some of that wandering loneliness spirit.
