This is an historical tower of recent Egypt,built in the days of the famous president Naser. You must have seen better towers, yet this tower became a symbol of recent Egypt. You enjoy seeing Cairo from above

One of the places on my bucket list, Cairo has always had a fascination since I was a child, and to finally visit this intriguing city was a highlight, the pyramids, the original Cairo museum with tutankamens mask was well worth the journey
