Nasr City, ewwww
How ugly is this suburb of Cairo? Even its name is ugly - victory - victory of what, I'm not so sure. It consists of building after building of concrete - I mean, just a glance at the photo reveals the utter tastelessness of the place. It reeks of the army everywhere you go - their 'fine' touches are everywhere. And they don't even have a single bar there. All they have are malls - really horrible ones, like Ginena mall, and wonderland. What kind of names are those anyways. And lets not forget Teeba mall......the ugliest of all. And why the hell do they have so many malls in the first place? And it is always crowded, it doesn't matter what time of day it is. It seems as soon as people enter this god foresaken place, they immediately want to u-turn and leave, thus the traffic jam. And let me not get started with the people that live there - those are another story altogether. It seems they actually think they're 'cool' because they live there, not realizing that no one in their right mind would even consider having a meal there, let alone live there. I think if I was given the choice of living in Nasr City or living in Saudi, I would have to choose Saudi - yes, it is THAT bad.
