Ramadan in Cairo is a time of modesty, reflection and even celebration - but, if we're honest with ourselves, it's also a time of great photo ops. There are few cities in the region that come alive in the same way that Egypt's capital does; the sights, sounds and even smells make for a unique time of the year that you just can't help but be swept away with.
We love a good session of Instagram browsing as much as anyone and we've gathered just a few of our favourite photos from across the city during the Ramadan festivities.
