One thing that is unique about Cairo is the traffic and the cars, it is generally okay for you to get too close to the other cars in the street event to touch them without too much impact which people call a “kiss”. It is also a common scene to see a car which hits the other car in front of it, and neither of them stop or want to stop, may be a few seconds both of them freeze and then they start moving again.
This explains why there is no car in Cairo that don’t have marks, scratches, and even a bumpy body!
So my new 30 days challenge is to keep my car scratchless for the next 30 days. It cost me three thousand pounds and 2 weeks to have my car repainted and i wanna enjoy this feeling for a while before i start to have the Egyptian style carvings on it.
So my plan is as follows:
1. Change my driving style and keeping more distance from cars.
2. Being careful but not too careful otherwise other drivers will be angry with me and will hit my ca on purpose!
3. Got a car cover that i will use during work hours, at least i will prevent the car from artists that want to draw long lasting pictures on my car with their keys and sharp objects.
4. Avoid going by car to places where i know i will not find a parking spot, like Mosadak street in Dokki or road 105 in Maadi! The more taxis i use the safer my car will be 😉
well that’s all. I just hope i can make it… Not easy but possible…
