A Ride on the Trams

Alexandria, Egypt

I got up late this morning. It is overcast and raining. I have breakfast at the street cart again. Beans, pitta bread and salad, with a strong cup of coffee. I am ready to go. A tram comes past and I get on it. It is going west. That will do.

Everywhere along the way people are at the cafes having a cuppa to start their day.

Most people just grab something off a street cart. It is cheap and it is tasty. Probably pretty healthy too.

There are lots of high rise buildings. Streets are narrow and buildings are tall.

There is always time for a chat.


And always time to check out what is happening around da joint.
