women wearing this kind of cloth on the  street actually, i guess it's more for in the house oh yes, i came  here before, and i know there   is a very narrow alleyway at some  point, and i found it, look at that and here we are, in the middle of the jewelleries  and nail cutters and all the things for the eyes i love this part of the bazaar of  alexandria, it's very very narrow, very funny what's that... ah, that's some buttons some fancy buttons and actually it's funny because it really  looks like i'm the only guy in this section well i'm not interested in buying anything, i'm just  interested in the local cultural landscape somehow   but what's interesting is  it's only... well only women   come to buy here, but a lot  of shops are owned by guys ah beautiful jewelry shops here, they  really like those rings in the middle east   i have several of them now, one  given by a policeman here... welcome photo, okay you're from alexandria right yeah okay you see always... right okay, thank you it's very good to see actually how   how nice egyptian people are, it's very  different from the reputation they have actually picture, yes... film

welcome, thank you i just crossed the eyes of a guy from the  army... quite lucky he did not say anything and it seems he's not following me that was close and we arrive in the section for the furnitures,  oh and there is music, and actually uh the fact   that i crossed the eyes of a guy from the army  made me remember what want to tell you... it's   quite an experience to film here in the streets  actually, it's quite a very intense experience   actually, because you have many people, the vast  majority who are very happy for you to film   they make... they say the welcome... they  they open to you. they want to be in the camera   you have a small minority that really uh... and  even quite aggressively tell you not to film  

and uh, but that's a very small minority,  but and then there is also the issue of...   as you can see all the furnitures around here   and then you have also the... yeah of course the  problem is uh... if the wrong policeman catches you,   then they're gonna bring you to the police station,  and you're gonna have to delete all your footage   so then you're always scared of that basically,  so it makes it quite a... quite a special experience  

to film here, because you always have this,  this fear on the way basically... look at that all the chairs ready to get bought look at all this beautiful work they do... no no no and i think i found what i wanted... look at that that's stuffed pigeons can i... can i eat pigeon... hi hi hi, hey how are you...  can i help you... yes, can i... you like pigeon,
