In this Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2013 photo, an Egyptian man smokes a water pipe at 'al-Mosheer cafe,' a traditional coffee shop that was established more than forty years ago on Mohammed Ali street, a street that is home to musicians, belly-dancers and instrument makers, in downtown Cairo, Egypt. The street, named after the founder of modern Egypt, was built in the 1860s as part of a new downtown that was to modernize Cairo. Inspired by French architect Baron Haussmann, the designer of Paris’ grand boulevards, Egypt’s then-ruler Khedive Ismail sought to "make Egypt a piece of Europe." The result was a downtown of avenues and city squares lined with arches and European architecture, between the Nile and the old medieval city of Cairo, with its Islamic architecture and maze of narrow alleys.
