There’s a reason that Cairo’s camel market is left out of most tourist guides to Egypt. This is a market for locals, and the only commodities are camels, which are sold primarily for their meat. After failing in several attempts to learn more about the market from locals, I decide to check it out for myself. Since there is no bus to the market, I hire a driver, Haisam, who can act as a translator as well.
