No. 0836 Satellite Dishes

Before there was Internet, there was Satellite.
A quick scan of any rooftop in Egypt, will tell you how connected Egyptians desire to be. In the midst of informal ramshackle housing, garbage strewn dust-covered rooftops, in areas even where children walk around without any shoes on their feet, you will find hordes of satellite dishes.

The satellite dishes are so many they blend into the backdrop,
like little moths clustering around a screen door in the evening,
they lace the rooftops over Egypt.
