Over a solid half-century, Cairo has invented an unusual means of delivering bread. The city’s cyclists zoom up one-way streets against endless lines of cars, slipping between the rows of chairs of a café, and disappearing into a bazaar. One hand serves to balance a wooden rack on their heads, bearing hundreds of rounds of bread, and the other rests on the handlebars.
