By now it's more than 12 years since I was in Cairo...

But already at that time it was difficult to get 120 film developed in many European cities - at least if you didn't happen to know which lab would do it.

In Cairo I just walked into the closest camera shop, delivered my film, and could pick film and prints up the very next day. If my somewhat hazy memory is correct(ish), the shop was on the Qasr El Nil, across the river from the Opera house where I spent most of my time.
