Above: Cairo, Egypt billboards from a few days ago. Mona is driving and taking photographs of, as she says, “visual pollution.” That is truly terrifying. The driving part, not the billboards.

Above: Cairo, Egypt. Mona captures a lovely Taxi (that looks like it was there
when I was in 1980-85). Note how traffic indicators are flexible, here, what is clearly marked as two lanes can just as easily serve four, or more.

Above: Cairo, Egypt. Thanks for the photos, Mona! You are the bravest graphic designer I know. Driving in Cairo is not driving, it is full-on racing.
