Angel of Babylon


This picture was captured when Jimmy went to Old Cairo, sometimes called Coptic Cairo, and specifically Fort Babylon. There, he discovered what many references usually seem to ignore, a vast graveyard. Angels, artfully rendered in fine stone, appeared to be mourning, or sometimes protecting the inhabitants. You can keep track of Jimmy's journey here.
