postcard from cairo
i got a postcard from my friend dominique who is doing a fulbright stint in cairo. she misses lincoln and misses riding a bike too. she has gotten the urge to get a bike while she is there but she said there is no way, it's too dangerous. but she does see people on bikes everyday, mostly men delivering bread. from what she has told me of the traffic, delivering bread via bike in cairo must be quite a dangerous profession. a few months ago she sent me this photo of one she saw one morning on her commute. props to the breadmen of cairo! i wouldn't last 2 minutes.
