PARIS
The old town

Paris, Egypt


Paris, Egypt

The old town of Paris is practically not visited by tourists; the few people who make it out here, use their time exploring the ancient slave city of Dush.
Should you have the time, Paris is actually quite interesting. It is filthy though, since it is mainly abandoned by its former inhabitants and taken over by goats. But some houses are still in use, and the ones not in use are in good condition. Should you be lucky enough to find an empty house with an open door, you have a chance to see how traditional life really was.
Some houses are decorated, and then they usually tell the story about the proprietors journey to Mecca, names and details are described with Arabic text, the means of transportation has been painted. A fine example just below.
