Snapshots of Alexandria, Egypt

I adore Alexandria because of it’s disregard for life in Cairo. While the city’s former glory has long since faded, there is a certain charm about Alex. It’s small, manageable, and friendly, and the food is amazing. Life there is truly Mediterranean; relaxed and unpretentious. Also, the traffic in Alex isn’t the hellfire that is traffic in Cairo. That’s always nice.

Here are the highlights of my most recent trip to the lovely city of Alexandria, with a few shots of my first trip thrown in there for good measure. Notice the lack of pollution, garbage, and general cleanliness.
