Getting lost in Downtown Alexandria is a blessing in disguise. On one hand, the mesmerising views and iconic buildings make for an exceptional walk down memory lane, only with an average of at least 10 cars manically honking at any given moment added to the mix. On the other hand, you find yourself literally on a treasure hunt in the area's charming narrow alleys. One of those days, we went hunting for Mahatet El Raml's oldest Stella bars, and boy were we delightfully surprised to find that there's not one, nor two, but THREE hidden waterholes that have survived through the decades, mostly untouched, to stand today as iconic time-capsules into bygone times. As you'd normally expect, we pulled out our cameras. And this was the result:
