Home to more than 16 million people, Cairo, the capital of Egypt is Africa's largest city. Cairo is not for the faint of heart. Traffic lights are routinely ignored and donkey carts still vie with cars for the right of way. Mosques and minarets mingle uneasily with gleaming skyscrapers and of course there are the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx, the oldest tourist destination in the world. A shoppers paradise (if you like to bargain), an archaeologists' fantasy, a drivers' nightmare; Cairo is all of these and more. Enjoy these images of Cairo and let them inspire you to plan your next trip there.
