    Refreshing, positive use of art in Egypt. Glad that some people there are looking to create peace. Great sign for the county!

    This makes me so happy. I’m hoping that Egypt can lead the international community in being tolerant and united.

    I remember when Giulia was exploring the region. It was just so peaceful moment. Sometimes I feel it’s so sad and stupid, to fight over religion. It is a really important aspects of life but why people should fight over what they are believing in? Why don’t we just accept who we are and be well together.

    Good to see all the feed back 🙂 Looks like I nailed my one (phew), many thanks for asking.

    And, again, it’s great to see someone taking such a different approach to writing about the Egypt!!

    I thought the original article and followup were very encouraging. It’s good to know that there are people in Egypt who believe Christians and Moslems can co-exist. There have been interesting discussions on radio’s “The Takeaway” about this topic, and the split in the Moslem Brotherhood between the older hard liners and the youth, who want a secular state where all religions are tolerated.

    That is awesome that travel bloggers stepped up to assist in deciphering the meaning of the street art in Egypt.

      So true. Bloggers are a great resource for travel information, and now we know they have insight into artwork too!

    Thanks for enlightening us on the efforts to promote peace and religious harmony using symbolism…not what i would have expected in Egypt (esp. the reference to Christian harmony)

      I was also surprised by the uplifting message of the street art, and the optimistic spirit in Cairo. Locals were proud of the revolution and seemed to have high hopes for the future!
