Dahab, an island on the Nile at one kilometer of downtown Cairo, is a whole different story. This 5 km length strip represents the green lung of the crazy 18 millions inhabitants capital… No car to be seen here, the only access is by boat and once on the island the only transport: donkey. The inhabitants of Dahab till little pieces of land. Muslims and christians live together on the island in a pretty harmonious atmosphere. The government who doesn’t have any official representation here (school, hospital, police) wants to modernize this land, eventually to transform it in a touristic place free of fellahs.
