Spring in Cairo

Sadly I was not so quick as I thought. Sorry for that. But here is finally my first Cairo Story, let’s better say photo story about Cairo in Spring! For Europeans like me there is actually an alltime spring period here in Egypt going from November until the middle of April. But Egypt has an own spring period beginning in March which is for me marked by blooming trees and other plants here in Cairo.  This mornig I went on photo hunt in Zamalek to capture some of Cairos Spring. The air was a little dissy but more fresh than on usual weekdays. Unfortunatly I have no idea about the botanical names of the plants I photographed except one…
