A burning sun in the sky. Cars are standing still in one of the main roads and they don’t look like they will be moving soon. Author Ahmed Hamdy bids readers “Welcome to Cairo” as he shares a collection of thirteen different stories about Old Young Lovers falling in and out of love in Cairo.

Despite the chaos that surrounds the daily life of every person living in Cairo, still most people try to find something to make life better and worth the suffrage they live—and what can be better than love? As Cairo is a part of an Islamic country, the relationship between men and women has always been encapsulated by religious rules and society’s traditions. Today, life in Cairo has changed a lot. Many parents still believe in those rules and traditions, but the new generation breaks some of these rules as soon as they fall in love. Couples can now be seen in Cairo holding each other’s hands, hugging and kissing in the streets.

Old Young Lovers reflects the new Cairo, where lovers find their place on the shore of the Nile and where they can spend so many romantic nights just looking at the moon and the legendary river, experiencing the delicious taste of lupine and grilled corn and isolated from the world. Cairo has changed throughout the years, including its people and its traditions. But love remains unchanged, swimming in the blood of Egyptians like the Nile’s pure water. This collection will take readers on a memorable journey to witness love being lost and found under the bright lights of the Egyptian capital.

Everyone wants to love and to be loved, to feel that someone cares, know that someone is there for him/her. The pursuit of love as the road that leads to forever happiness has been the quest for human beings for years. Ahmed Hamdy says, “do not pursue love, let it pursue you. Love will find you just when you least expect it and when you stop searching for it.”
