El Moez street, the heart of the old Islamic town of Cairo, a place where layers of historical eras that passed by Egypt pile on each other. This small antique shop just summarized it all for me, with this simple looking pious old man, sitting surrounded by antiques belonging to all these different eras, representing his glorious cultural heritage, while his looks and the position he was assuming reflects the weight of the tough life and the bad economical situation that he bears, which is the bitter reality of many of the middle eastern countries these days.
