The Call to Prayer in Cairo

I’ve said that Cairo is the loudest city I’ve ever been in, but that may not be true in the future.

A report on public radio discusses plans to replace the myriad calls to prayer that wash over the city five times a day with a single recording. That seems like a loss. There is something compelling about the way the call to prayer rolls over the city in a wave of sound that rises above everything.

Please don’t do it.
