Thank you, I was waiting to see photos that a member has taken himself of Alexandria a long time.
I visited Alexandria when I was 10 and while I remember that I loved the city, the smell and sound of the sea and expecially the people I don't have any photos.

I would like it very much if you could post more street level pics of the neighbourhoods.

Finally, we have Egyptian forumer in SSC ! Welcome Mohamed .

Nice pics of Alexandria. I went to Egypt 2 years ago and stayed Egyptian families in Cairo, Luxor and Aswan. I didn't manage to visit Iskandariyah .

Are you from Iskandariyah anyway ?
