i love these windows.  classic cairo.  the women would sit inside of these windows and look out into the streets without being seen…currently am reading mahfouz’s palace walks and the description of the wife who is rarely to never allowed to leave the house and walk on the streets makes me think of these windows  she can only look out of windows and enjoy her garden on the roof.
