Egypt Revisited

Image
In 2007, I did a travel shoot in Egypt for CNN India. This was much before the trend of international travelogues in India. It was also golden days of the television news industry where production was of top quality with the best of camerapersons and video editors. There was zero tolerance for a bad shot or a bad edit. It might seem a bit slow for today, but this episode was a nomination for one of the best travelogues. Enjoy watching my young self take you through some history, dance, food and other delights of the great land of Misr. #Egypt #Misr #travel #Travel #SaharZaman  @SaharZaman
