Cairo and the Pyramds

It’s difficult to start to understand a city as Cairo in a short visit of only a couple of days. However, if you let yourself walk around the streets, get a taxi or sit down to drink a tea at any small street shop you could get a glimpse of the soul of this chaotic, overwhelming and marvelous city. This is not a story of Cairo, we don’t try to make a minimally comprehensive description of the city. It’s only a short trip around the experiences, feelings and fears that Karla and myself have done on our two-day visit to Cairo.

Day 0

Arriving at an unknown airport in an unknown city at night is always a stressing experience. However in this case the new installations have probably a balsamic effect in our minds, especially if you went from Khartoum in Sudan (and more if you had there the opportunity to watch the “only men” passengers flying to Teheran). In any case when you arrives, you have to navigate a hoard of taxi drivers (and managers)...

Khartoum – Sudan

The following days in Khartoum we continued with Colab workshops and also could visit places on the city. We met Gama, a Sudanese friend of Hamasik and Felipe (from Brazil), for a coffee at Goethe Institute, his workplace. It is a very pleasant there; they have a beautiful yard where we drank the Ethiopian coffee recipe with scents and ginger. Later, Javier took us to see the place where the 2 Niles meet. It was late afternoon at a park, a mixture of green area with an amusement park, I just loved it.

By the end of the workshop, after we finished the work, Elamin invited us to a boat tour on the Nile. I sat on the stern of the boat and due to the strong sound of the engine I could not hear what people were talking, so, I got quiet observing the landscape. It is interesting to perceive the strength of the river, in a way, everything here is related to it. I imagined the legends and old stories that could exist on the places I was passing by...

Khartoum – the arrival

We arrived at Khartoum around 4am after a long trip from Spain and Brazil. The trip was a long time of talking, reencounter, disclosures… And early in the morning, with almost no sleep, we went to Colab workshop. This travel was together with Juan Freire, Gabriel Perezzan and Aurea Martinez. We came to Sudan to work in this CoLab Project (ICPL – Khartoum. Interdisciplinary and Collaborative Projects Laboratory).

After the day in the French institute working with local artists, activists, culture producers, I was really tired and went back to the hotel for a nap while the others went to a walk on town. The evening was a great dinner at Assaha Restaurant, a beautiful place resembling a Lebanese traditional village.

The second day in town I was more awake, we went to the workshop from 9am to 3pm and after we decided to visit the Sudan National Museum. Since it was a beautiful day, Juan and I went for a walk by the river, to cross the bridge to Tuti Island...
