“Koshari”: Chaos vs Creativity

Koshari is the most famous meal/dish in Egypt, made of rice, macaroni and lentils mixed together, topped with a spiced tomato sauce, garlic vinegar; garnished with chickpeas and crispy fried onions. We also use the same word to describe something that is completely unorganised. Cairo is a city that is controlled by chaos, which is the most obvious and powerful law of the city. All its inhabitants and visitors have to learn how to understand this code and formula to survive.
