I like it a lot. Very surprised actually. I like the metro line, must me the most modern underground system in North Africa, love the design.

Algiers (since 2011) and Cairo (1987) are the only cities in Africa with a metro. Tunis has a light rail (we can say a mix between tram/metro). So yes it's without any doubt the most modern one in Africa, actually there's no competition.

Constantine (Cirta at that time) was the capital city of the Berber kingdom of Numidia, and then went under Roman dominion. Constantine is commonly called ''The city of bridges''. Because of its unique topography, the city needed a lot of bridges. There's a total of 8 bridges.

1) The falls bridge


2) Sidi Rached bridge


3)El Kantara bridge (built during Roman presence, restaured by Salah Bey in 18th century and then in 1863)


4)Sidi M'sid bridge (168m length)


5)Devil's bridge


6)Perregaux footbridge


7)Independence bridge


8)Cité des chasseurs bridges (no pic found)

I went to Cairo two weeks ago. I couldn't use the metro system but the unfortunately the impression I had when I saw the stations entrances was not that good.
These pictures of Algeria made me wanna go there but the bureaucracy on visa applying makes it a really tough adventure. Keep on posting here, I'm loving it.

Fiquei sabendo mais sobre a Argélia depois do jogo deles contra a Bélgica no Mineirão na Copa. A torcida argelina era sem dúvidas a mais empolgada, e fiquei impressionado com a aparência deles, pensava que seriam semelhantes aos marroquinos mas são pessoas altas de pele branca, bem diferente do que eu imaginava.

Agora vendo as fotos me parece que o país é bem "ocidental", o metrô faz inveja a muitas cidades daqui e as paisagens são deslumbrantes.
