Al Rehab gets a Redo
The area I live in here in Cairo is called Al Rehab. Last summer they started repainting the apartment buildings. This area is pretty much surrounded by desert, at least on 3 sides. The 4th side is the big city. So, the heat and the wind are pretty hard on the appearance of the buildings here. Above is a picture of buildings before, during and after the painting. Everywhere we look, buildings are either finished or in the process of being painted. For some reason our building has not been painted yet. In a way, we are glad they have waited so long to get to our building. Our apartment will have to be closed up during the painting because they are even painting the balcony areas. The weather is finally cooling down so it won't be as hot while they are painting. It is making quite a difference, don't you think?
