At the Egg Shop

We were driving down a street near the pyramids last night when we noticed a brightly lit egg store and I stopped in to take a couple of pictures.

Despite appearances, this is not a wholesale operation. It is common to see someone carrying a couple flats of eggs home for a few days meals. Egyptians eat a lot of eggs and they have large families. 

Eggs here are transported by truck to the small shops in every neighborhood where you can buy as many or as few as you need.

We usually buy by the carton of ten (What's a dozen?) and this year have been using the large "red" eggs.

(Eggs do not need refrigeration outside of the United States.  Government involvement, of course.)
