Today’s photo is a picture of the shadow cast by the Cairo Tower onto the ground below. This 187 meter high granite tower offers spectacular views over Cairo, as long as the weather is clear. If you’re lucky, you can see all the way from the pyramids in the west to the Muqattam hills in the east, and there are numerous telescopes if you want to zoom in on anything that catches your eye. There is a revolving restaurant, and a cafe that serves good ice-cream. At night, the tower is lit up with lights that change color and pattern. Some locals will tell you the light display depends on the mood of the tower’s owner!
