Created in 2016 and attracting more than 200 thousand followers, the Arab World Twitter account captures the hidden beauty that can be found in all Arab countries, from the stone deserts of Morocco to the mouthwatering oriental desserts in Syria.
Egypt is no exception to this beauty; it is a land characterized by breathtaking sandy dunes, majestic beaches, and kind, humorous people. It’s why Egyptians and expats alike miss Umm Al Donia when they leave; perhaps these photos can help you reminisce over all the enchanting sights you can explore walking through the streets of Egypt.

And finally, this happy coincidence where a stray cat stood on a car, the license plate of which reads “qitt,” which means “cat” in Arabic.
