    Now Nour is a Merman and also a Sea Prince who has got to prove himself to the King of Seven seas and Princess Seas Mermaid. He would live for two weeks in the sea town and try to help the people in the best way without prince power.

    The two weeks are over. All the Princes all failed except one prince or rather a fake prince , our
    prince Nour. Nour opened a Saddles workshop. The saddles already invaded the Underwater world and the King was impressed. The King decided to give his daughter’s hand to Nour. Honest Nour confessed to him who he really was. The King welcomes him and decided to let Nour marry his daughter Seas Mermaid. Yes at last Nour and Seas Mermaid are going to have their wedding party or rather celebrations for 40 nights.
    The couple lived happily but it was not forever after yet

    Annually thousands of Egyptians from all over Cairo and Giza come to "Wakilat Al-Balah" to buy affordable clothes for feasts especially in Eid Al-Fitr.
    "Wakilat Al-Balah" is one of the biggest popular markets in Cairo and Egypt for textile already. It is also the biggest secondhand clothes market in Cairo if not in Egypt.
    From couple of days I passed through 26 July street which is considered the the entrance of the Wakilat which means in Arabic “The agency” and I found it extremely crowded with families and people buying affordable clothes.
    Street Vendors selling clothes and shoes invaded for real the street on both sides as well sidewalks.

    26 July street market
    People come and affordable clothes and shoes from Wakilat Al-Balah's 26 July street
    Here you can see a family buying shoes from a street vendor  
    You will find in the 26 July street everything when it comes to clothes from adults to Children , from women to men , from XXS sizes to XXXL sizes , from shoes to bags to swimsuits and all that with affordable prices.
    26 July street market
    The side streets turn at this time in to open-air clothes shop 
    26 July street market
    Batches of clothes sold by LE 40 where other Batch by LE 35 and LE 25

    The prices start as low as LE5 . It depends on the Quality of course.The average price as I have seen was LE 25
    26 July street market
    People do not usually negotiate over prices here

    26 July street market
    Most of those clothes stands are owned bigger merchants 
    Needless to say the Wakilat and 26 July street vendors and merchants are the greatest example of grey market in Egypt.

    The merchants in Wakilat demand on their relations with the municipalities and police force in the area to get away with their illegal trade when it comes to those clothes street vendors.

    Buying new clothes is one of the traditions in Eid Al-Fitr.

    By the way the Italian Consulate is located partially 26 July Street. It is interesting how the bombing of the consulate did not stop thousands of Egyptians living their lives normally and heading to the famous street in order to buy clothes.

    The end of this season from Ramadan Radio Arabian Nights is coming as it seems.
    Now Nour is mermaid now who is married to his beloved Seas Mermaid. They are supposedly happy, but there is something missing.

    Nour is missing his father and mother. He feels sad that he left the land without saying goodbye to them. Frustrated and angry , he decided to head to old Sea Witch at the Sour sea with his wife
    Princess Seas Mermaid. He wanted the old witch to find a way to undo or at least temporarily suspend that magical needle in his body so he can restore his human form.
    The Old sea witch shocked him when she told him that she got no more magic and she could not help him.
    Depressed and sad , Princess Seas Mermaid suggested that he would write a message to his dad on a deerskin and put it in a fancy box along with 100 pieces of gold and his father’s address so whoever found the box, he would take the hundred pieces of gold and deliver the message to Sheikh Mansour of Gor.
    Seas Mermaid also put a curse on the box that whoever failed to deliver and decided to keep it for himself or herself.
    Of course the box did not end up at Sheik Mansour’s house but it ended up at an old cursed lady in China as we know.
    This was the story of Nour as inscribed on a deerskin, as it was read by an old man to the Sultan and his wife. Now the old Sheikh will tell the sultan and his wife what happened to sheikh Mansour.

    Sheikh Mansour searched for his son but in vain as his boy seems to be vanished from the surface of earth. One winter and while taking a shelter at a waste and , a Jinn appeared to Sheikh Mansour who was crying for his son. The Jinn knew the story of Mansour and his son. He decided to help the old human. He told Mansour to head to the Dragon pond to see his sister Queen Sabrine who could lead him to his lost son. Sheikh Mansour should arrive the pond and cross it before Sunset otherwise he would miss meeting that Queen of Jinn.
    The Jinn gave sheikh Mansour his winged horse because it would take two years to reach Dragon pond if he used his human abilities only.
    Sheikh Mansour arrived pond and while he was crossing it , he found an old lady asking his help to cross it. As a good man ,Mansour decided to help the old lady despite she may slow him. For his surpris , the old lady turned to be Queen of Jinn , Sabrine whom he wanted to see.
    He explained his problem , a problem which Sabrine can not even find. Sabrine tells Mansour to search everywhere for his son but the old man reminds her that his age is too old. Thus the good Jinn decided to make Sheikh Mansour drink form magical water that would prolong his life till the moment he would meet his sons or know anything about him.
    For decades and centuries , the old man traveled chasing a mirage , till one he entered that city in China after an earthquake where he heard the people speaking about the old cursed lady and her box. He also heard about the deerskin and the Sultan’s demand.
    Yes that old Sheikh standing in the Sultan’s court was Sheikh Mansour and for the surprise of everybody , the very old man just disappeared after finishing his story leaving clothes that turned in to dust.
    The Sultan orders his vizier to write down the story of Mansour and his son Nour down in the city’s archives.
    That’s folks, Scheherazade finished her story for this year.
    Well at least our Little Mermaid had a more cheerful end than the original Hans Anderson’s Little Mermaid. Nevertheless I feel there is a bit sadness in it, how Nour lived away his family and how his father missed him.
    By the way in 1985 , the Egyptian State TV presented a televised version of this story directed by Fahmy Abdel Hameed and starring legendary Diva Sherihan.

    I hope you liked it this year.
    See you next year inshallah in another Radio Arabian Night :))
    Happy Eid Smile

    Original poster of the film in 1960 
    It is a social traditional in Egypt to have new films in cinemas, it is a season for filmmakers.
    Now in Egyptian Chronicles, there will be no screening for a
    new film.

    There will be a screen for an old film. As Omar Sharif passed away last week , I would like to Share with you one of his famous and popular roles in Egypt before he hit international stardom: His role as shy Hussein in the 1961-Romantic Comedy “Rumor of Love” or as it is translated in IMDB's Agony of Love 

    Now before he was that enigmatic Arabian El-Sherif Ali and Russian Revolutionary poet in Dr. Zhivago, Omar Sharif was Hussein , the dork of Port Said in the Agony of Love.


    Directed by famous Egyptian director Fatin Abdel Wahab , the film had a first A Class stars during then including Omar Sharif , legendary actor Youssef Wahbi , Abdel Moneim Ibrahim and special cameo for Hend Rostom as well famous footballer then Adel Heikal  who was a close friend to Sharif.

    The Agony of Love “1961”

    Now one of the things I loved about Sharif was his honesty. He was extremely honest when he said that the true leading actor in this comedy was not but rather the legendary actor Youssef Wahaby and fine comedian Abdel Moneim Ibrahim.


    Despite being in the social life extremely sociable and ladies man , Sharif presented the role of Shy Hussein perfectly.
    Sharif , who had unforgettable scenes in Top Secret admitted that comedy was not his thing in Egypt.
    Nevertheless, I believe he did great in the Agony of Love. Up till now I remember some of the scenes he made.
    In that Egyptians were once again presented to the new starlet who would be a true legend later: Soad Hosni as Samiha.
    What I like about that film is that it is from the films that leave Cairo and go to the governorates as a setting presenting Port Said as Cosmopolitan city.
    “Agony of Love” is inspired from an American film produced in 1930s called “ Talk of town” by the way.
    Anyhow stop reading and start watching that funny film.
    Happy Eid.
    Oh and once again I will use this post to find an excuse to share that photos showing the sexist men in Egypt in 1950s and 1960s in the1970s
    Adel Heikal , Omar Sherif and Saleh Salim
