Cairo. City Scavengers

One of the strangest and most controversial parts of Cairo to visit - it Zebela Medina City or scavengers. This quarter at the foot of the mountain Mokattam consists of traditional building the poorer districts of Cairo - three nine-storey brick houses with unfinished upper floors. The same satellite antenna, the same street hookah ... That's just a lot of garbage. Garbage bags stacked multimeter pyramids along the streets, garbage bags littered all roofs, laid down alleys and stairways. It is played by children, adults dig it.

Rubbish - the basis of life of the district. Sort municipal waste - a job for zabalin (scavengers) that inhabit this quarter.
