One of pleasures of living in Maadi has been the greenery all around me. And I love my apartment cos on one side I look out on a vast plot of land, populated by trees.
Mornings were spent on my balcony, sipping a cup of tea, watching the trees gently sway in the wind - who would believe that I was in dessert land?
Unfortunately, my tryst with greenery has ciome to a rather tragic end! The trees have been felled, and a monstrous four building complex is going to take its place...Time to move on?
