Eid prayers in Cairo

After a month of Ramadan and fasting, it’s now Eid, and it feels like all of Cairos 17 million inhabitants decided to go out and pray at the same time. I thought Alexandria was crazy, but this might have been worse. The prayers started at sunrise and I just had to go and watch it. I’m becoming more fascinated by Muslims. They have a very strong devotion and they really rely on their religion! It was really a once-in-a-lifetime experience to see all these people pray on the streets.
