Tahrir Square at night

Location: From window of Nile Hilton, Cairo, Egypt
Year: 1984
Merckslides catalogue number: 01-13112
Comments: Tahrir Square is at the very center of Cairo. It is horribly congested at any time, but during 1984, it was a huge construction site as well, torn up for construction of the Cairo Metro. At night, it was like a strangely decorated version of Dante's hell.
