NO PARKING LOT – JUST KEEPING YOUR CAR CLEAN!

Pointing to a car parked on a main street in Cairo, totally wrapped up with a protective cover, I asked my friend, “Can you park your car on the street here for a long time?”

“Oh, no – the owner will probably come back soon. Many people cover their cars like this everyday, even for just a few hours. It’s to keep them clean!”

The sand from the desert is part of life in Egypt – and car owners who are protective of their vehicles have found ways to cover them, and protect them. There are many different types of covers – here are some of them.
