A visit to Cairo without going to the Khan El-Khalili souq (market) is like going to the Pyramids and not riding a camel. Souvenirs that can be bought range from colourful tent cloth, engraved brass, shisha water pipes or even belly-dancing dresses. Khan El-Khalili is situated between the grand architecture of Islamic Cairo and modern downtown Cairo. But with the rise of Mega-Malls, the marketplace is now a controlled environment to help people spend more money. A NEW Khan El-Khalili is conveniently situated between the fast-food court and the latte drinks lounge.
The 2nd Edition of the Middle East Peace - World Wide Panorama is a cooperative effort by VR photographers living in United Arab Emirates (UAE), Lebanon, Israel, and Egypt. We have organized, worked together and produced QTVRs that are linked together. Our message is clear, we cannot ignore each other any more since we all benefit from peace. This is our way to contribute to the Middle East peace efforts. The members of this family are (in alphabetical order): Andy Alpern (Israel) Eldar Sharir (Israel), Fadi Saikali (Lebanon), Loyd Almeda (Dubai), Rana Mahmood (Dubai), Samir Ahmed (Dubai), Waleed Nassar (Egypt), William Matar (Lebanon) and Yaniv Sirton (Israel). Thanks go to all participants for contributing to this effort, to Samir Ahmed for designing and writing the flash in our QTVR's, and to Waleed Nassar for coming up with the idea of this edition.
