Trash City, Egypt

Some more interesting photos, this time from Trash City, Cairo. And if you are wondering why so many of those buildings (practically all of them) have an unfinished top floor, it's because of Egyptian tax law. You do not have to pay property tax on the floor below an unfinished floor, so Egyptians build the number of floors they want and then add on a never-to-be-finished floor on top.

Don't ask me where I got that information from, because I honestly don't remember -- but you read it here ;-)
