The streets of Cairo seem to be less prepared for the holy month compared to previous years

When the sun sets over Cairo during the month of Ramadan the streets are quiet. Most people are at home, or with family or friends, to break their fast. In every area of town you will find makeshift restaurants that serve Iftar to whomever lives in the area and has a hard time making ends meet and to any stranger that happens to pass by. It shows the spirit of hospitality, generosity and unity for which the holy month is known.
