Egypt: Coptic marketplace

I adore this photo.  It sooooo represents how Egypt straddles two ages–tradition and history on one side, and modern technology on the other.

This is one of those situations where I wish I had recorded my guide to retain the information.  This wall, and marketplace, has existed for over 2000 years.  It is likely Jesus and his parents bought their food and walked these ancient streets.
