You see, it’s very difficult to keep your car clean in Egypt. After just a few days, there’s a layer of sand making your vehicle just a little browner than it was meant to be.
So it surprised me to see such a shiny black vehicle. It was parked on the roadside. I was even more surprised because it was an SUV. It’s pretty rare to see gas-guzzlers in this part of the world.
There was a man inside, wearing a suit and tie. He was leaning out his passenger side window, talking with someone. That someone was wearing a dirty green galabaya and sitting in a cart drawn by a ragged donkey. The man with the donkey was laughing toothlessly at what the man in the shiny SUV had said.
If this happened more often, and on a larger scale, the world would be a better place.
