the time I went to Garbage City


Location: Garbage City, Cairo, Egypt
Year: 2012

Garbage City was probably one of my (unexpected) favourite places in Cairo. It’s an area inhabited by the Coptic Egyptians on the outskirts of Cairo. It’s essentially a ginormous recycling centre, except people live amongst it, and sorting out Cairo’s waste is a means of survival for them. We also got to visit some Coptic churches while we were there, and met some beautiful people with amazing stories.
