Crossing the Road
The title I’m using for this post could be used to romaticise about something, about goals and direction, about the future, but I use it for a much simpler reason: actually crossing the road.
During this stay in Cairo, I’ve been living here, (that’s a Google maps link to my Hotel, Le Meridien Heliopolis).
Notice the four-lane highway, with cars whizzing by at speeds up to 120km/h? I cross that one everyday.
There are two ways to cross the way, by using an unnderground tunnel around 800 meters away from the hotel (in the same direction I go), or by doing it frogger style (the way many egyptians prefer to cross the road).
The Question is : Why do I cross the road?
To get to the other side!
