The Cairo Zoo and a Great Cairo Blog

A relatively new blog about Cairo called CairObserver and devoted to "Architecture/Urbanism/City Life" is one I've been meaning to recommend for some time, so I see no reason not to do it with this ode, with lots of pictures, to the Cairo Zoo in Giza, once a Victorian gem, now gone to seed but with its old grandeur still showing through in places. Any old (or new) Cairo hands will want to browse the other postings, too.
