Another Apartment in Cairo

Fleeting Glimpse takes you on a tour of another typical Egyptian apartment. This one is in the upscale area in Maadi known as Degla. This apartment - furnished in the condition it is in, and without functioning air conditioning - rents for 4,000 LE (around $700.00).

  1. Are you kidding me? 4000 LE for this apartment? WOW! I like yours much better!

  2. Are you a muslim? then why on Earth would u show yourself without hijab and an apartment with alcohol? It is said if we dont obey the religon our children will be rebellious and get into trouble. This is obviously true with you. Your son gets out of jail and u dont go see him? You dont have enough money for a ticket to Egypt for him? What kind of husband do you have? I ask Allah to guide you, you are really lost.

  3. Hello "Anonymous", please let me tell you what I think you got wrong. This post's video is about ANOTHER apartment from a blogger's acquaintance, it's not her own place. If you want to take a look at her real apartment, then you can search her post from March 17, 2009:

    So your comment is not only wrong, but also extremely inappropriate. I think you should apologize.
