The Mosque of Sultan Hassan stands in the shadow of the Citadel, Cairo.

The building is heavy and impressive – XIV century, Mamluk architecture style. The light comes from above and draws lines of shadows and light. The prayers are silent as if the link with the divine as a special voice we can’t hear. A shadow passes by and I caught the smooth movement of a body. Maybe it was an angel.
