The sad rise of prostituition in Cairo...

There's a point when the parents of a country get so desperate they sell whatever they can to make ends meet, including their daughters.

This topic came up with some guys at my hotel when Ahmed stood looking at his Facebook account on the small netbook atop the check-in desk and said, "She's in Africa."

A flurry of Arabic went back and forth between the three other men before the story was eventually explained to me. Ahmed had been dating a girl from the country who came to Cairo after the revolution to earn money to send her family.

She fell into prostitution, Ahmed said, quickly making it clear she floundered at the job; being unable to demand payment and allowing men to do whatever they liked, it was an ugly tale.

Even worse, she'd disappeared and Ahmed hadn't heard from her in months, until that morning on Facebook. That started a conversation about Cairo prostitution, which they all said blossomed following the revolution. Full story...
