No. 0855 Love for Mickey Mouse

I think generally, Egyptians like cartoons and all things cute, Mickey Mouse being one of them. In places where you'd expect to find swear words as graffiti, I've found instead graffiti of Mickey Mouse on walls in the Arab world. I think the majority of Hadonas (daycares) in Egypt have some form of Mickey Mouse (like the below) as a welcome (or wellcome) for the children.
