Cairo has long been known as the "Hollywood of the Middle East" or "Movie Capital of the Arab World." Today, as we headed out to the animal hospital, we noticed a particularly "tricked out" tuk-tuk. We didn't think anything of it as there is a perpetual contest here to produce the fanciest of these machines - not to mention achieving incredible sound levels with their audio systems.
But, on the return trip, we rounded a corner and found we were right in the middle of a video or movie making production. The crews from Flicker Media Production Services and a few other companies were hard at work filming a scene with that tuk-tuk.
Here, the director gives final instruction to the actors who will be running behind the vehicle. Then, it's "Action!"
Then a review and, most likely, another take. But we were on our way by then.
