Egypt: Cairo and the Western Oases

This gallery contains only a few pictures of Cairo, because thousands of pictures of Cairo already exist. It concentrates mainly on the Western Oases near the Libyan border. Most of the pictures might look quite idyllic, though I must admit that I found the town centres of the oases rather shabby, without any traditional houses. And inside the towns there is hardly any green, all the trees are at the outskirts of the towns. Nevertheless, enjoy the photos!
