It is a new chapter in our tale this year, the tale of the Cursed lady’s wall. It is the chapter concerning that beautiful mermaid who saved Nour last night.
Now listen to the episode because it is very interesting.

Our mermaid’s name was Seas Mermaid and she was the daughter of “San-Gor”, the king of the Seven seas and a human woman. Nevertheless, she was kept in the dark by her father and grandmother under the sea. She did not know that she was half-human.

Kodak Agfa Presents : #Ramadan Nights in Zeinab Khatoun House Cafe

Egyptians  love to spend their Ramadan nights outdoors whether in cafes or restaurants or by the Nile.
Some may even spend all night outside their houses till Dawn prayers where they eat their Suhur. It became a social tradition between youth especially. I think it started in the 1990s with the spread of the so-called “Ramadan tents” offering Suhur as well Shisha and sometimes musical segments with famous singers.
Now it is all about open air space, Shisha, good food and a nice place to hang out with your friends.
We are in summer and you can imagine how this is making many young people go out.

Now one of the places in Cairo people hang out in Ramadan nights as Your Kodak Agfa discovered last week was the unique Zeinab Khatoun House café in the heart of Islamic Cairo, in Al-Azhar quarter.
Originally built in the 14th century, Zeinab Khatoun house is from the oldest remaining houses from that era that still keeping its identity and history amazingly.
It is named after its famous owner in the 18th century Lady Zeinab Khatoun who helped the Egyptian resistance against the French occupation led by Napoleon Bonaparte in Cairo.
The Zeinab Khatoun House
I think her name was attached to the house since then.

Save Shawkan , Esraa and Peter

I do not know what to do but we have to keep the noise for both photographers Shawkan , Esraa Mahfouz and Peter Youssef as much as we can for the sake of their health.
Shawkan , Esraa and Peter 

According to Freedom for Shawkan official Facebook, Mahmoud Abu Ziad aka Shawkan’s health is deteriorating rapidly as he is infected with Hepatitis “C”. He got it before his detention.
He is also suffering from anemia and lack of proper health treatment in the prison. On Thursday, Freedom for Shawkan Facebook page published a letter from Shawkan which he wrote from behind
the bars in Tora prison on 21 June. 
In the letter, Shawkan slams the decision of President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi’s decision to pardon 165 detainees from youth arrested in protesting-related charges. Shawkan wonders why he was ignored in that presidential pardon when most of the detainees are released turned to be Pro-Morsi supporters and members of the Muslim Brotherhood when the regime attacks the Brotherhood day and night designated it officially as “Terrorist organization”. He also says in his letter 900 people were arrested with him during the dispersal of Pro-Morsi Rabaa sit-in and that almost all the member of the Brotherhood arrested with him were released , the prosecution is insisting to keep him and more than 300 others since then behind bars. Shawkan does not understand why the regime calls the MB members “terrorists” and releases them when it insists that he should stay in jail.
The freelance photographer calls his colleague from journalists to stand together to restore their rights.
