A Divine Place
I love vistas. The possibilities are endless. This one is located in the Gayer-Anderson Museum in Cairo. This 17th house is filled with furniture, carpets, curios, antiquities and artworks that were collected by Major R.G. Gayer-Anderson Pasha, an English eccentric and self-described Orientalist.
There are many myths attached to the house. My favourite is that God spoke to Moses on this very spot, which I don't doubt for a moment.
