A short movie from Cairo, Egypt, one of the most populous cities in the world

Cairo is much busier than this movie suggests! Traffic is absolutely wild, with cars getting precariously close to one another – and as a result there is no car without a dent or scratch. Pedistrians fill the streets, voices, car horns, motors, music… it’s a cacophony, a wall of sound! The government is planning to move the parliament and consulates and all governmental offices to a new town 40 miles to the east of Cairo, so that the city traffic will get some release. I was surprised to learn that the subway in Cairo is one of the oldest in the world.
