Cairo and Alexandria on the Mediterranean coast. The Nile River and its delta stand out clearly as well. The Sinai Peninsula (right) is outlined with lights highlighting the Gulf of Suez and Gulf of Aqaba. Credit: NASA
17.1.2017 - (day 6/100) + packing list + my neighborhood at night
sooo i’m going to cairo for a week (expect pictures ;) lots of them) during midterms but i think it’ll be okay?? we’ll see, i guess. ^^’ and i did something (??) with my camera at night that made the lights look strange so that’s what that is~
Ancient Egypt was symbolised in many ways, but three main ones seem reflected in the accompanying photo of the Nile at night taken from the south. The northern part, roughly from the beginning of the delta near the ancient capital of Memphis (close to modern Cairo) was known as Lower Egypt, and traditionally associated with the cobra, whose rearing shape and fan like head has long been seen in the shape of the river. To the south and onwards towards Nubia lay the kingdom of Upper Egypt, symbolised by the vulture, whose long neck and head also seem to emerge from the river’s pattern. Both lands were united by a semi legendary king named Narmer/Menes (see http://on.fb.me/1QELxQU) around 3000 BCE.
At evening, Souq Al-Kahraba is where city lights are sold. The light cloud maker. I came across it when I got lost in downtown (imagine) but I often visit since. Looking for a welcome sign when they used to be popular.

So I’ve spent the last few weeks compiling some of my favorite music to all the playable characters in Overwatch. The playlists can be found on Spotify by clickingHERE and going to the “Public Playlists” tab.
Each playlist has 10 songs and is roughly 30-45 minutes. Most are lyrical, although there are some instrumental songs mixed in. Each playlist ends with a song that has something to do with the character’s ultimate ability (whether it be the song title matches the ultimate name, or the song gives off a vibe of how you feel while using the ultimate).
Below the Keep Reading tab I’ve put the track lists and links to each individual playlist.
