Glitter alley
This is perhaps Cairo's most famous qahwa, or coffeehouse. It's located in the center of the amazing Khan El-Khalili bazaar, and is a favorite hangout for locals and tourists. Tell us the qahwa's name and win an exclusive cairolive.com "I Love Torshi" sticker.
Hint:The name is written on one of the chairs in the photo.

Please include your mailing address so we can send you your prize if you are a winner.

Good luck!

The first 10 people to submit correct answers will receive an exclusive cairolive.com "I love Torshi" sticker. 


How sweet it is...
Obviously, everybody loves batata, or sweet potato, which was the right answer to our last pic contest, where we asked you to tell us what this street vendor is selling.

Congratulations to the 24 people who got it right.

Looking forward, looking back
It was probably our easiest pic yet...
All you had to do was tell us the name of the pharaoh whose statue graces the central Cairo square of the same name... 

The answer, of course, is Ramsis II, and a whopping 19 winning entries arrived in a very brief amount of time. So we're giving everybody who answered correctly a sticker this time, and not just the first ten we got.

Doorkeeper to antiquity
We asked you where this doorknocker came from. A lot of you knew. Or maybe the clue -- that the building turned 100 this year and there was an article about it on cairolive.com -- helped out. In any case, the right answer was the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir Square and the following twelve people were right on the mark. 
Congratulations! Your exclusive cairolive.com "I Love Torshi" stickers are on the way...
