The City of the Dead in Cairo is the largest necropolis in the world. A million people live inside the cemetery. We can find everything there: bakeries, cafes, schools, puppet theaters. Although the City of the Dead extends for more than ten kilometers, it is nevertheless a village where mothers scheme to find the best match for their daughters, boys chase girls, and neighbors fight every day.
