The Last Millionaire: Cairo

Publisher: BBC
Number of pages: 31

Description:
Noisy, crowded and choking traffic -- Cairo is a city that assaults the senses and breeds a love/hate relationship. Split in two by the Nile and with the desert on its doorstep, Cairo is an exotic and chaotic mix of ancient and modern. It has 4,500 year old magnificent pyramids on its doorstep yet modern concrete suburban sprawl threatens to engulf them.
