SNOW IN CAIRO?

When we think of Cairo – the Sphinx, the Pyramids, sunshine and warm weather – come to mind. But this week there was no sunshine and it was not warm – IT SNOWED!

Something that has not happened for over one hundred years, and most people alive in Cairo today have never seen snow — here are some pictures of  ‘what a difference a day can make.’

It did not snow enough to cover  Khufu’s Pyramid, but enough to confuse the camels.
