For 20 years I have shied away from writing about Cairo .
A reader recently emailed me with an interesting question: " While I have a good sense of the design elements of the narrow street and attached housing for the front, I don't see much of what the back looks like.

We are trying to assemble a list of individuals and groups writing about these issues, especially those on Facebook.
