2012-07-31 to 08-02 – Alexandria, Egypt, a set on Flickr.
Al Iskandariyah is the local name for this Mediterranean town. It was founded by Alexander the Great. And like before in Cairo – maybe even more so – the past grandeur shines through at every corner. Add to gracefully decaying buildings that sometimes date back to the 18th century the bright blue sky and the deep blue sea and you’ve got yourself a resort of a different kind.
