Exchange of Impressions and Mapping

Upon arriving in Cairo, we approached Al Darb Al Ahmar through a dérive, just like we had approached the Veddel in Hamburg. Drifting through the district, we probed into the method as well as the neighbourhood, getting in touch with a completely different context. In an evening roundtable discussion, we exchanged our impressions and presented the mental maps, thereby sharpening our perspectives by sharing our experiences and associations.

These impressions were then exchanged by presenting the mental maps at an evening roundtable discussion, thereby sharpening our perspectives and sharing knowledge.« Lukas Grellmann
