I was looking for a business in downtown Maadi where I could print out our absentee ballots, scan them, then email them back to the clerk by Tuesday. While I was searching, I stumbled across a video that linked me to YouTube. It's another video of Maadi, our community here, this time from a car.
The video starts right near a rotary which is where I get my bus to the new campus of AUC (about 45 minutes away in New Cairo). When I walk home from where the bus drops me, I first cross the old tracks (-- I wonder when there was last a railroad there--- nothing like that now). Then I walk down the straight street for a short time which is called Port Said. It leads to downtown Maadi, an area called Road 9, which has many shops on both sides of the street for about 1/4 mile. When I'm walking home, I turn off before Port Said gets to downtown. At about the one minute mark on the video, where the driver turns right, I would walk left to go home. Our flat is about 5 blocks in.
Here's the link to the video:
