A bicycle bread delivery guy steadies a rack of bread with one hand through Cairo traffic.
If you've been to Cairo, you know how horrendous, haphazard and lawless the traffic is. For motorists, people represent little more than obstacles to dodge while traveling at mach 2. That's what makes these smooth-as-silk bread delivery guys so incredible. They're all over Cairo but I've never seen them once even slow down. They weave in and out of traffic like a ghost to deliver their important shipment of leavened cargo.

The bread rack also leans as the bicycle turns. It must be noted, the delivery guy is doing this while steering one-handed AND trying to avoid becoming road-kill!

All of these photos were taken at Talaat Harb square within a 1 hour period. Note, all the bikers are different. Bread is constantly in transit all around town like this. Just absolutely amazing acrobatics on the bicyclists part!
